Hanna graduated from our Physician Associate Studies course in 2019.
She's currently working as a Physician Associate at the Bingley Medical Practice and Wilsden Medical Practice, after receiving a job offer while on placement as part of the course :thumbsup:

Hanna shares her experience of her course with us:

The Physician Associate programme here at the University of Bradford was intense, however, it was structured well so that we were covering the theory and given the opportunity to put that into practice when on placement.

The programme leads are incredibly supportive and willing to help the students whenever needed.

I thoroughly enjoyed being on placement and gaining all my skills and knowledge through meeting patients and medical staff. It was truly an honour to be given the opportunity to be involved in the care of patients and allowed to be privy to some difficult and life changing moments in a person’s life.

What I deeply hold dear is the lifelong friendships and the camaraderie of my fellow students. As a cohort we pushed each other, studied together and practiced our OSCE’s together. Most importantly, we supported each other and worked as a team.

Gaining my Diploma in Physician Associate Studies has most definitely been integral to my career change and progression. Without the Diploma I would not qualify for sitting the national exams and hence practice as a Physician Associate.

I received my results on the 1st November and started work on the 4th November. I cannot emphasise enough the opportunities that can arise from being on such a course.

I'm currently about to qualify in therapeutic radiography and don't want to work in the field anymore.

How did you fund this - are you aware of anyway I can access funding as this is the only barrier it seems 😔.

Also are the osce exams so much worse than at bsc level?

Thank you so much

Hi Hanna,
First of all huge CONGRATS! That is such an amazing achievement and I can only imagine the hard work that has gone into this for you. So well done again and to get your job role so quickly after it is a major bonus! My Name is Naomi and I have recently graduated as an infectious disease clinician after obtaining my First-Class (Hons) last summer! I currently work as clinical support in Oncology here in Manchester (which I love). I have recently applied for my MSc in PA and waiting a decision. My only and huge concern is funding. Could you give me any advise on this aspect at all as I feel that this is the only barrier to my dream job?
Many thanks and congratulations again,
Naomi
