  • Course description
    This is an intensive two-year clinical course open to applicants with a first-degree in a health or science related subject. This course prepares you to work as a Physician Associate (PA) in the NHS.
    PAs are healthcare professionals who work to a medical model alongside doctors in hospitals or GP surgeries. This course will prepare you to take a medical history, examine patients, diagnose common problems, perform procedures, and recommend treatment. For more information about PAs, please see the Faculty of Physician Associate website.
    The Department of Health is committed to increasing the number of PAs in the NHS, particularly in general practice. In Dorset there is a real need for additional healthcare staff in all of the acute hospitals and in GP surgeries and it is expected that PAs will be part of the solution to this workforce shortage.
    To be eligible for the postgraduate loan and Academic Excellence Scholarship, you must enrol onto the full MSc route.
