Professional standards for student PAs and AAs

As PAs and AAs are trusted professions that provide care to patients, there is a higher standard of behaviour expected while studying. We’ve published guidance for PA and AA students to outline the standards expected at all times both during and outside your studies.

We’ve also published guidance for PA course providers and guidance for AA course providers on managing professionalism and fitness to practise concerns. The guidance outlines the processes that course providers should follow if they're worried about a student’s professionalism or fitness to practise, and students might find them a helpful reference too.
