Make your voice heard: 2018 census now open

The FPA census is an important activity in the profession’s calendar, as it gives UK physician associates and student physician associates the chance to contribute to our national voice.

The 2018 FPA National Census is now open. The FPA is encouraging as many members as possible to complete the survey, which should take no longer than 15 minutes.

The census results help us to paint a realistic picture of the current physician associate profession across the UK to:

  • demonstrate the exponential growth of the profession nationwide
  • continue to build a strong case for our campaign for statutory regulation
  • play a knowledgeable and proactive role in future workforce planning.

The continuing case for professional regulation needs support from a strong, validated dataset, which you can help to provide by completing the census. It covers basic demographic data; data about prior education and experience; and data on your day-to-day scope of practice.

The census will be open for 1 month. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
