UCLan offers a growing number of programmes at its Westlakes campus, comprising postgraduate, part-time, full-time and flexible study options. Programmes run across a number of faculties including Business, Law and Applied Social Studies, Culture and Creative Industries and Clinical and Biomedical Sciences.
The UCLan PGDip in Physician Associate Studies provides an exciting opportunity for graduates to become healthcare professionals and receive a salary whilst training. Physician Associates provide care to patients under the supervision of a Consultant or General Practitioner. Their role includes interviewing and examining patients, ordering tests and making decisions about patient management.
Designed for UK and international students, this four-year course offers a foundation stage for the Medical Sciences degree, with the possibility of applying to progress to our Medicine (MBBS) programme* or the integrated Masters in Physician Associate Studies after the first year. International students will be taught during year 1 at our Westlakes Campus in Whitehaven and UK students will be taught at the UCLan Burnley Campus. Following year 1, all students will transfer to the Preston campus where tuition will continue on all programmes.
