Course content

This course aims to inform and equip the practitioner with the necessary skills to function in a modern clinical environment as a Physician Associate.

Course overview

The physician associate is a type of health professional whose development has been led by the Department of Health and has involved the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and Royal College of General Practitioners (RGCP), as well as the profession itself through the UK Association of Physician Associates (UKAPA). 

Why Study Physician Associate Studies with us?

All of our courses involve using current and past research extensively. This course is delivered by a research-active group of academic staff, supplemented by a variety of Clinicians and Biomedical Scientists from local Hospital Departments.

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidencebased practice. We will develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an effective manner.

How will I be taught?

You will learn through formal lectures, case-based learning, seminars, clinical simulation and the clinical placements. 

The theory part of the course covers general medicine, and you will spend 1,500 hours on a clinical placement covering: community medicine; general hospital medicine; accident and emergency; mental health; obstetrics and gynaecology; and paediatrics (acute setting).

How will I be assessed?

Assessment will be through coursework, reflective logs, examinations and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs). You will sit a national exam at the end of the second year, including a Multiple Choice Question paper and an OSCE.

The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two articles in the style of published scientific work.
