Physician Associate Studies

Course Description

The second year of study is funded.

The course is ideally suitable for life science graduates, nurses, allied health professionals or anyone interested in pursuing a challenging and exciting career in healthcare.

This is an intensive and innovative programme delivered by a leading UK medical school - Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, a faculty of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The programme has been designed to give students the skills and knowledge required to become an effective physician associate (PA). Physician associates support doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients. As a PA you might work in a GP surgery or be based in a hospital, but wherever you work, you'll have direct contact with patients. PAs are required to maintain their generalist skills, in contrast to doctors, this allows them to move between different specialties and areas of practice enabling the PA to have a varied ‘portfolio’ career with a strong patient focus.

Course highlights:

- Funded second year
- Excellent employment opportunities
- Opportunities for student exchange in the USA with Duke University
- A leading UK medical school ranked second in the UK for Medicine – Guardian University Guide 2017

- Fast-paced and highly rewarding 27-month course
