We are trying to address pitfalls in the integration of Physician Associates (PAs) into medical specialties. We have drafted a letter for Dr. Sarah Clarke, President of the Royal College of Physicians, to express our concerns and suggestions regarding this change. This letter highlights key issues such as the impact on trainee career progression, the need for a thorough impact analysis, and the importance of an evidence-based approach to integrating PAs.
We need your signature – this is not solely about expressing concern, but actively shaping the future of our profession and ensuring that any changes made are beneficial for both trainees and patients as a whole. If you are a current doctor in postgraduate training, or taking time out of training, please consider signing to support the EGM motion by fellows.
