This course has been set up with the ultimate aim of producing high quality Clinical Radiology consultants, capable of meeting the challenges of this dynamic and rapidly evolving specialty.

Radiology trainees are required to assimilate a large body of knowledge with which they will have been previously unfamiliar over a relatively short timescale, including detailed knowledge of imaging physics and anatomy as well as the full spectrum of disease processes and associated imaging features. The three clinical modules of the course provide a thorough grounding in these essential areas of knowledge. Generic professional skills do not always receive sufficient focus in everyday radiology training. Furthermore, despite the rapid advances being made in imaging technology, the number of radiologists actively engaged in high quality research remains small. The three professional modules of the course develop skills in the key domains of research, leadership and teaching. The dissertation component of the MSc provides the opportunity to undertake a supervised, high quality piece of research in a chosen subspecialty area.

Key Areas of Study

At a time of significant change in the NHS, Physician Associates (PAs) are playing an increasingly valuable role supporting doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients. The PA is a relatively new role in the NHS, working alongside doctors in hospitals and GP surgeries, supporting the diagnosis and management of patients.

This innovative course, designed in partnership with universities in Kent, Surrey and Sussex, provides students with the knowledge, professional and clinical skills to work as a PA. The integrated curriculum borrows from the successful undergraduate course at BSMS with augmentation through intensive discussion of clinical cases in small groups, and includes significant time in local clinical placements and simulation facilities.

Key Areas of Study

-Integrated curriculum with clinical placements in primary care throughout Year 1 (one day per week)
-Patient-centred learning approach
-Anatomy delivered using prosection
-Simulated based learning throughout the curriculum
-Clinical reasoning strategies for diagnosis
-Rotational attachments in clinical specialties in year 2
-Further 6 weeks of clinical placements in primary care in year 2
-Evidence-based approached to theoretical and clinical learning

Course Structure

The course is assessed using Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) and Knowledge tests at the end of each year. The latter consist of 120/240 Single Best Answer Questions for Years 1 and 2 respectively, and the OSCEs will adopt a typical multi-station approach. These tests are conducted as ‘Pass/Fail’ assessments; with a resit period available should any student fail their initial attempt. As part of the Clinical Practice – Foundation module, a number of clinical practice placements in local NHS CCGs affiliated with BSMS will be completed by the individual throughout the year.

In order to achieve accredited PA status, students will also be required to pass the Physician Associate National Examinations. These take place in January, March and September each year.

Year One
-MDM151 Biomedical and Clinical Science for PA (30 credits)
-MDM152 Case-based learning for PA (Foundation) (45 credits)
-MDM153 Clinical Practice for PA (Foundation) (45 credits)

Year Two
-MDM154 Case-based learning for PA (45 credits)
-MDM155 Clinical Practice for PA (Senior) (60 credits)
-MDM156 Preparation for Practice (15 credits)

Career Opportunities

Qualification with the PG Diploma in Physician Associate Studies and successful completion of the national examination will allow alumnae to work in a variety of healthcare settings including general medicine, paediatrics, and in community settings. Local trusts have already developed workforce plans for PA posts, including East Surrey Hospital, where PAs are well established.

Following graduation from the PA course, and subsequent completion of the Physician Associate National Examinations, PAs can expect starting salaries of Agenda for Change Band 7. Progression thereafter will be dependent on competency, attributes and opportunities to progress to higher pay scales.

As the PA role has been identified as a key emergent profession within the NHS, it is envisaged a large number of job vacancies will become available locally and nationally in the coming years.
