Students at De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) have the chance to train for a rapidly growing healthcare role in the UK – with opportunities to engage with experienced US practitioners.

Physician Associates (PAs) have been an integral part of the healthcare model in America for more than 50 years, supporting doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients.
