What is the Physician Associate?

The Physician Associate is a new role in the UK but is well established in North America. Physician Associates are not doctors, but adopt the medical model in the assessment and management of patient. They work in a team context with delegated autonomy and medical oversight.

Physician Associates are currently working in the UK in a variety of clinical settings such as:

• medicine for the elderly
• emergency departments
• mental health services
• trauma and orthopaedic surgery
• general practice
• medical and surgical assessment units
• clinical decision units

Overview

The programme is offered once per year commencing in September, with the first intake in September 2014 (subject to validation). This is a highly intensive course delivered over 27 months full time.
Year 1 is university based with a minimum of 1,610 hours of student effort. Year 2 is based in practice undertaking a variety of placements amounting to 1,610 hours. Followed by 12 weeks completing the dissertation.
All components of the programme are mandatory and a total of 180 level 7 credits being required to gain the award of MSc Physician Associate.

Employability

The Physician Associate is a relatively new role in the UK, but UK PA graduates are practising in a diverse range of clinical settings in many parts of the UK and in clinical areas including, but not limited to: general practice, urgent care, emergency care, medical specialities and surgical specialities. The difficulties in recruiting doctors in acute and primary care to meet emergency and urgent care needs makes the Physician Associate a highly sought after clinical professional in the health care sector. Local intelligence suggests that current employment opportunities outstrip the supply of Physician Associate graduates seeking these roles.

In modern times public health interventions have consistently made major contributions to social progress, yet at the start of the 21st century familiar public health problems still persist and new challenges are emerging.

The MSc Public Health at the University of Worcester is a postgraduate programme for health practitioners and professionals from the wider workforce who impact on public health. The course will develop your public health skills and establish an advanced knowledge base for your chosen field of public health practice, whether in the UK or internationally. Public Health requires an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of health problems and the professional practice needed to address them, and meeting the new complex health problems of the 21st Century requires integration of thinking and practice across many disciplines.

Public Health at the University of Worcester is therefore an exciting progressive course that is relevant to both the ‘traditional’ public health workforce and a wide range of ‘allied’ professionals seeking to enhance their ability to impact on the public’s health. The course is structured so that applicants from diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to gain a sound foundational knowledge base in contemporary public health practice that is of equal relevance to your career progress, whether in the NHS, internationally, in private health care organisations, in allied health sciences, or in third sector organisations. Having established this foundational knowledge, students can select option modules in order to maintain a broad based approach to public health, or choose options in a way that enables them to pursue more focussed interests in UK practice, international public health or health and sustainability.
