This course would appeal to students who enjoy performing arts and are keen to consider their wider significance and are open minded to creatively exploring new possibilities and experimenting.

On this course you will explore how the boundaries between drama and dance, performance and life, creativity and work are always shifting.

These shifting boundaries mean that performing is very much a process of adaptation: from idea to stage, from voice to body, from research to practice.

This programme starts with four lecturer-led modules, which provide you with a critical underpinning of performance and research paradigms, and contexts, and then moves to independent study and live performance.

The course encourages you to think of the Performing Arts as both an autonomous art form and as something that can have a range of real-world applications as you translate and adapt stories and experiences into performance.

Course content

You will study a range of modules, which include:

•Approaches to Performance
•Reseach Skills
•Investigating Creativity
•Industry Contexts

You will also be able to participate in projects which seek to consider theoretical models that might facilitate an understanding of real world applications of the performing arts including, but not limited to, the performing arts themselves.

The course concludes with a project led by you, in which you develop either an artistic concept or use ideas explored during the course in a wider social context.

The dissertation/major project will be largely self-directed, and it is anticipated that you will integrate technical and theoretical components from the earlier stages.

The project contains a written componenet, encompasses practice-based research and will specifically link theory to practice. It is expected that you will reflect critically on your experiences of performing, as informed by your own primary research.

The role of the physician associate, formerly known as physician assistants, is a new and quickly growing group of postgraduate health professionals in the UK.

Although they are not doctors, they are trained in and work to the medical model in order to gain the professional attitudes, skills and knowledge to deliver holistic care and treatment within the general medical and/or general practice team under defined levels of supervision.

With the increasing challenges faced by the National Health Service, the physician associate role is key in supporting and augmenting the medical and wider healthcare workforce in number of acute and community care settings; ultimately their role improves patient access to health care and their overall patient experience.

As a direct result of the shortfall in the number of qualified doctors, the role of the physician associate is gaining momentum across the UK healthcare arena.

We will equip you with the knowledge and skills that will help develop you as a caring, knowledgeable and competent physician associate that can truly have a positive impact on the patient journey.

On this Postgraduate Diploma in Physician Associate, you will benefit from 90 weeks of academic study that integrates the theoretical and scientific foundation of medicine with clinical experience.
