Masters degrees in Physician Assistant Studies train postgraduates to work under the direct supervision of a doctor, performing examinations, diagnosing illnesses and analysing test results.
Related subjects include Physician Associate Studies and Clinical Education. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Nursing or Medicine.
Physician assistants undertake a range of activities across several healthcare settings. Courses in this field will help you develop, implement and manage care plans and pathways for various patients across different practices.
Courses usually involve a work placement, where you will be trained in the processes for diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as best practice for patient liaison, including evidence-based medicine.
Depending on your interests, you may wish to specialise in a certain kind of medical care, such as obstetrics and gynaecology, mental health or sexual health. Alternatively, you might want to specialise in general surgery for specific patient demographics, such as paediatrics or geriatrics.
Physician assistants are typically placed within community medical contexts, such as hospitals and health centres. You may also help with home visits, or be placed in organisations such as nursing homes.
