Graduate Entry Medicine and Physician Associate- POSTGRADUATE

Hi, I'm going to apply for a couple graduate entry medicine courses and the rest physician associate courses. I need to apply for the grad entry med by 15th October. Can I apply for the physician associate courses later, or do I need to apply for them all at the same time? Also do I use the same login that I used for my undergraduate applications or should I create a new account?

Any PA courses that require applications via UCAS will need to be submitted at the same time that you submit your medicine UCAS applications. Some PA courses accept direct applications to the university, these can be applied for later on, but do be aware of the applications deadlines for each university.

I will say that the PA is a different role to a doctor, regardless of what anyone tells you. If you want to be a doctor, study medicine. If you want to be a PA, study PA studies.

Hi! Have you ended up applying for PA in the end and which unis did you apply to?
