2 Years

Program Description

Our Physician Associate Masters degree will help you develop a range of skills relating to the cardiovascular, respiratory and gastro-intestinal systems; the eyes, ears, nose and throat; the skin; and the renal, genitourinary, male and female reproductive systems. You’ll learn to become a caring, capable, knowledgeable and research-aware Physician Associate, with high-level clinical and communication skills.

At ARU, your study will be divided equally between theory and practice, employing the medical model of teaching, learning and assessment. Besides lectures, tutorials, practical workshops, role play and simulated skills work on campus, you’ll complete a programme of clinical placement rotations in general practice, hospital wards and outpatient settings across the East of England.

Additional costs:
• Travel to placements: Associated travel costs
• Medical equipment: Up to £500 depending on equipment required
• National Exam: The National Exam is not part of the Masters and the cost of the exam is therefore not included in your fees.
