The Physician Associate is an emerging role within the NHS. Physician Associates are collaborative healthcare professionals with a generalist medical education, who work alongside doctors providing medical care as an integral part of the multidisciplinary team.

Physician Associates are trained to recognise, diagnose and manage common conditions under the supervision of a doctor. Physician Associates can work in a wide range of general and specialised areas of clinical practice within both primary and secondary care settings, and across integrated care pathways.

Our 2-year postgraduate MPAS Master of Physician Associate Studies programme involves approx 50% of student time on clinical placement in a range of primary and secondary care settings (such as hospitals and GP practices) in the diversely-populated Bradford district and across the Yorkshire area.

You must have at least a 2:1 in a relevant Biosciences Degree (for example, Biomedical, Biological or Medical Sciences, Biochemistry, Sports Sciences, Pharmacology), or be predicted to achieve this at the time of application.

Hey @rzi999

It depends on where you studied your Psychology degree so you will need to send your transcript to the admissions team so they can assess whether if this meets their requirement. Please contact them on [email protected]

Thanks,

Good Morning lx kaur

You don't necessarily need experience in a Science field however if you do this will be an advantage. Please see the entry requirements for the course below:

Essential
2:2 (or above) in a Life Science, Biomedical Science, or Healthcare subject from a UK University or overseas equivalent. Applicants should offer either a strong science degree with substantial biology content or offer substantial healthcare experience. We will consider academic qualifications and work experience on a case-by-case basis. Please email the Admissions Team with details of your degree course or work experience if necessary on [email protected]

Desirable
Recent experience of volunteering or employment in a healthcare environment.

Hope this helps!

Hi.

How many people apply for the PA course. I understand an average of 30 get on but how many applicants are there altogether.
Also, how many people from the Clinical Sciences progress onto the PA course on average.
