Program description

Physician Associate Studies PGDip

Physician associates support doctors, based in GP surgeries and hospitals, with taking medical histories, performing examinations, diagnosing illnesses, analysing test results, and developing management plans.

On our PGDip Physician Associate Studies course, we’ll teach you the skills you need to make an impact in this new, exciting position in the NHS. You’ll develop the well-rounded knowledge and skills that modern practice demands and which potential employers search for.

You’ll be taught by academics with international recognition for their expertise in medicine, who will inspire you with their wealth of knowledge and experience.

By the time you complete the course, you will be able to provide medical care to a standard as defined by the National Examination for Physician Associates, allowing you to work in either primary or secondary care.
