Course summary

In this course you gain the skills and knowledge to become a physician associate: a healthcare professional trained in the medical model, being developed across the NHS.

Taught by experts from the School of Chemistry, Food and Pharmacy and the School of Biological Sciences, this course offers:

Industry-specific training: Designed in partnership with our local NHS partners to respond to career needs within the NHS, our course offers you the most relevant, practical content.

Teaching from medical experts: You will be taught by NHS staff and academics whose research prevents disease, improves diagnoses, develops new therapies and advances clinical practice. Everyone who teaches you has on-the-ground experience.

Clinical placements: Take part in placements within both primary and secondary healthcare settings throughout your degree.

Careers for MPAS Physician Associate Studies Graduates

As a physician associate, you will be able to work in a wide variety of workplaces including GP practices, community health services and all types of hospital care.

Supporting doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients, you will:

  • take medical histories
  • perform examinations
  • diagnose illnesses
  • analyse test results
  • develop management plans.

A lack of trained physician associates in the UK means that career prospects for graduates are excellent. The predicted growth of this role across the NHS, to fill an important resource gap, indicates strong continued employment prospects.
