Ne öğreneceğim?

Overview

This programme is suitable for graduates from life sciences or health courses and is designed to prepare students to enter the professional role of Physician Associate (PA). The Physician Associate role is an emerging role within the NHS and is defined as someone who is:

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.

The programme is intensive. It is delivered over two years and leads to the award of a professional Master’s degree.

The requirements of a competent Physician Associate are not just based on theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Newly qualified Physician Associates need to be reflective practitioners with appropriate professional attitudes and attributes, able to critically reflect on their practice at a personal and organisational level and have the confidence and ability to instigate change.

The Master's academic component of this course is focused on achieving the competencies required of a graduate PA and provides the challenges of enhanced knowledge synthesis, audit, and service improvement to produce academic Physician Associates with the ability to lead and develop the profession.

Physician Associates are not currently but are soon expected to become a regulated profession. Our Physician Associate course is designed to meet the UK Physician Associate curriculum and programme standards in preparation for achieving regulatory body accreditation in the near future.

Key features:

  • Fully-integrated two-year professional Master's course
  • Early exposure to clinical practice with a longitudinal GP placement beginning in week 7 of the first year
  • A range of primary and secondary care placements in the diversely-populated Bradford district and across the Yorkshire area
  • Opportunity to choose preferred speciality and location within the Yorkshire area for elective placement in the final weeks of the course
  • A focus on patient safety and improving quality of care
  • Opportunity to be actively involved in development, innovation and research of service provision through completion of a Quality Improvement Project
  • Part of a university that has a long-established and successful history in Health Professions education and that supports new and innovative ways of improving health and health care delivery

There are also numerous opportunities to work with patients, service users and carers who are involved in classroom teaching sessions.
