Months of entry
Physicians Associates (PAs) are health professionals who see patients and address their health needs whilst working under the supervision of doctors. Qualified PAs have direct contact with patients in their assessment: taking histories, performing examination, making diagnoses and considering management plans, supported by the new Faculty of Physician Associates.
The University has an excellent medical school and successful applicants to the course will benefit from our world-class facilities and expertise.
You will acquire a firm grounding in the knowledge and skills of generalist medical care to equip you to support doctors in ‘first contact’ health care, either in general practices or in hospitals. The modular course will be delivered in a systems-based, integrated way which places the patient at the centre.
The University is working closely with both Acute Trusts (hospitals) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (primary care) so that our graduates have the right qualities to meet the needs of potential employers and the public as a whole.
