Where could it take you?

Physician associates are highly sought-after clinical professionals in the health care sector. Due to difficulties in recruiting doctors, your role will improve access to healthcare for our increasing and ageing population. You will support the growing demand for assistance needed by GPs, hospital doctors and medical teams in acute and primary care.

After completing this course, our graduates have achieved a 100% employment record, as well as an exceptional record in the National Certification exams. In 2017, our graduates scored above the national average in the written component, and in a significant majority of stations within the OSCE component, with 94% of our graduates passing the exam first time.

Our University trust partners provide clinical placements on this programme. Following successful training, placement mentors often employ our graduates. Our graduates are currently working in many parts of the UK - jobs currently exceed the supply of our graduates, providing promising employment opportunities.

Please note: This is an initial qualification for those aspiring to become Physician Associates. This course is not open to healthcare professionals seeking professional development opportunities.
