NOA Webinar: Physician Associates in Orthopaedic Services

Date: 21 February 2024 at 1:00pm - 2.30pm

This NOA webinar focusses on the role of Physician Associates in Orthopaedic Services. In this session, we explore the integration of Physician Associates into orthopaedic practice and their impact on training opportunities for surgeons.

A recent report by the Association of Surgeons in Training  looked at The Physician Associate Role and its Impact on Surgical Training and Patient Care.   Our esteemed panel of speakers will provide valuable insights and expert opinions on this topic.
