    I graduated in 2016 with a 2:1 in BSc (Hons) Psychology and since then I have been working in a GP surgery as a Health Coach. I am hoping to become a Physician Associate after I have completed the relevant degree. I was just wondering if anyone has become or applied to become a Physician Associate with a Psychology background?

    Sorry to hear you haven't had any replies yet.

    It's perfectly possible to achieve this with a Psychology background, but you should bear in mind that you may struggle with the more physical health knowledge you will be expected to have. Your current job should certainly be beneficial with this, but you may want to do some additional study just to help yourself get up to speed.
