Previous enrolment on a clinical course

If you have previously enrolled on a Physician Associate Studies or another clinical course which you did not complete, you must declare this on your application and provide information about the circumstances.

We operate a modular system for this course which means the qualification is obtained by a process of credit accumulation – a model used on courses throughout the UK and Europe.

The course is designed to cover all aspects of the Physician Assistant Competence and Curriculum Framework to ensure that graduates are able to succeed in the National Examination at the end of the course and work as physician associates in primary or secondary care.

View all Close all

Year one

The first year is dedicated to ensuring you have a good grounding in the sciences underpinning health care. Communication and clinical examination skills are a key part of the first year curriculum. You will spend four days a week on campus and one day on clinical placement, which will be organised in a GP practice.

Year 1 teaching is system- or theme-based, following a brief introductory period. We begin with the ‘big three’ systems: cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal. Most themes are covered in two- or three-week blocks, with a large amount of information delivered in each block.

Information is often delivered across multiple modules (see below).

Year two

In the second year you will begin with special topics weeks covering skills such as ECG interpretation and suturing, before beginning your hospital placements. You will then be on campus one day every three weeks as the emphasis shifts towards clinical work and placements, with 36–39 weeks being spent in hospital and six to nine weeks being spent on a GP placement.

Modules

The modules for this course are integrated; your learning throughout one module will significantly inform and influence your learning in another module. The course consists of eight modules totalling 180 credits at level seven.

View all Close all

Applied Pharmacology (15 credits)

This module lays the basis for future prescribing activity and ensures you have a good understanding of common drugs and their effects. (Please note that PAs do not yet have prescribing rights in the UK. However, strong pharmacology knowledge is essential for PA practice.)

Evidence-Based Practice in Healthcare (15 credits)

This module enables you to locate and evaluate evidence underpinning decision-making in healthcare and to develop your skills in critically appraising this evidence.

Foundations of Clinical Medicine (Year 1: 30 credits; Year 2: 15 credits)

This module covers integrated body systems, pathology, differential diagnosis skills, models of decision-making, and applications of the underpinning sciences to patient conditions. It also provides an overview of the clinically relevant elements of human anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology and pathology.

Investigations in Clinical Medicine (Year 1: delivery; Year 2: delivery and assessment: 15 credits)

This module runs across both years of the course and addresses the common and pertinent investigations relating to the clinical practice of a Physician Associate. You will learn about the role of clinical investigations and their relevance in relation to common and important presentations in clinical practice. It will involve analysis of common investigations performed in primary and secondary care.

Personal and Professional Development for Physician Associates (Year 1: 30 credits; Year 2: 15 credits)

This module runs throughout the two years. Your achievement of core clinical competencies, procedural skills and work with specific clinical conditions will be documented. Developmental reviews support the practical learning achieved during this module.

Physician Associate Applied Clinical Knowledge and Skills (45 credits)

This module facilitates the application of clinical knowledge and examination skills with appropriate supervision from suitably qualified and skilled clinicians in real clinical environments, preparing you for entry into professional practice.

Having risen to the teaching challenges posed by COVID-19 since March, using the online virtual learning platforms at the university,  we are going to continue into the Autumn term with a 'blended learning' approach (online essential face to face on site teaching and clinical placements). This approach will be reviewed for the Winter and Spring terms respectively and may be subject to change in line with Government guidance.

Blended learning will still enable students to interact directly with patients in a variety of settings and collaborate with other students on a variety of healthcare- and science-related courses, creating a diverse learning community where knowledge is shared across disciplines. Reflecting real medical practice, it’s the perfect environment in which to practice working together as an integrated team, resulting in optimised patient care.

Sharing our campus with one of the UK’s most renowned teaching hospitals allows us to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching.

Teaching at St George’s is delivered through a compelling and engaging variety of methods including lectures, problem-based learning, self-directed learning, small group discussions, clinical and community placements, role-playing, presentations, and post-mortems.

Teaching and learning methods

Problem-based learning

Given a clinical problem, you will use self-directed research to make a diagnosis and suggest an appropriate course of action. Problem-based learning encourages learning in context, self-motivation, and deep rather than surface understanding.

Self-directed study

This course requires a significant amount of self-directed study, outside of teaching hours. In the first year, lectures are complemented by group work, designed to develop clinical and communication skills. You are allocated a clinical supervisor who is a General Practitioner and will support you in developing your skills development throughout your GP placement.

In the second year, you'll continue community placements, as well as rotating through a number of acute clinical placements, including:

  • general medicine

  • paediatrics

  • obstetrics and gynaecology

  • emergency medicine

  • mental health

  • geriatric medicine.

Assessment methods

Assessments are designed to prepare you for the PA National Examination and will be a mixture of written papers, written examinations and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations.

A portfolio of your development of the core clinical skills and competencies is monitored throughout both years and is submitted for assessment at the end of each year. Written coursework assignments and/or presentations are set for the modules in Personal and Professional Development, and Foundations of Clinical Medicine.

When you graduate with a Master’s in Physician Associate Studies from St George’s you open a world of opportunities. The sheer breadth of experience that you will gain on the course means you are assured of a varied and exciting career. 

We are proud to boast an outstanding employment record upon graduation. Our unrivalled reputation for excellence means you can expect to secure rewarding positions in GP practices and acute trusts throughout the UK.

The course is very demanding but incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. Our multidisciplinary approach means that by the end of it you will be able to:

  • safely practice in a wide variety of clinical settings within your scope of practice and under agreed supervision

  • be an expert communicator who is empathic in a manner appropriate to a healthcare professional

  • critically examine health inequalities and the challenges of working in a multicultural environment

  • be aware of the limits of your competence and committed to acting within these limits

  • critically evaluate the context of multi-professional working in a team environment

  • be adept in the use of communication and information technology skills for healthcare

  • critically appraise the evidence underpinning your practice

  • be a capable and motivated lifelong learner who is continually engaged in active professional development

  • understand the need to maintain and promote health, as well as to cure or palliate disease, and be aware of your obligations to the wider community, as well as to individuals

  • integrate theoretical and clinical learning.

We have been working hard to find ways to teach our courses without disruption, while keeping our staff and students safe and making sure we follow government guidance on Covid-19. We won’t be making any significant changes to the content of our programmes, but there will be some changes to the way they are delivered. Please see below for further details of how this may affect this course.

If government advice changes, we may need to update our plans. If we do so, we will update this information, and will keep current students and offer holders informed by email.

We will also continue to update our frequently asked questions page for applicants and offer holders as more information becomes available.

Course content

We are not making any significant changes to the content of the Physician Associate Studies MPAS programme.

There is a possibility that government advice on social distancing may change in the future and this may restrict access to the campus. Even if this were to be the case, we expect to be able to continue to deliver the content of the programme as planned.

Supporting vulnerable students

Students considered to be most at risk from Covid-19 should work at home wherever possible in line with government advice. Students who are going on placement will be required to complete an individual risk assessment and others may choose to do so. In addition, students from vulnerable groups, including care leavers, students estranged from their families and students with disabilities, are prioritised for help from the University’s Hardship Funds and for accommodation in Horton Halls. Priority for loans of laptops from the University will be given to those eligible to receive a hardship grant; those registered as disabled, care leavers or with caring responsibilities; and international students who may have difficulty sourcing an appropriate device on arrival in the UK.

We recognise the impact that the current circumstances may have on mental health and have expanded our counselling provision, offering remote appointments to any student. In addition, every student will be allocated a personal tutor to offer individual pastoral and academic support from the start of their studies. (Further information about health and wellbeing advice during Covid-19 is available here.)

Priority consideration has been given to support for students with disabilities when accessing teaching and learning online, through the provision of automatic live captioning and British Sign Language within our primary technologies of Panopto, MS Teams and Big Blue Button. These can benefit a range of students, especially those who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as students with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), memory processing issues, and for whom English is an additional language.

Human-level captioning is also available where a need has been established through the Disability Advisory team. Human-level captioning requests are processed by the Learning Technology Services (LTS) section and can be requested by email to lts@sgul.ac.uk.  

How the course will be delivered

The existing learning outcomes for our modules and courses will remain in place. From September to December 2020 all students will primarily access their learning, including learning materials, via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Hands-on practical teaching and learning activities will be delivered on campus with appropriate social distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE) measures put in place, and with controls on the number of people in each location.

The online components of the course will be designed to balance interactive real-time sessions with lecturers and other students, with self-paced independent study. Students will have clear learning pathways through the activities they are expected to engage with, and there will be opportunities to check learning and progress.

Personal tutor support and all other student support, such as the Academic Success Centre, will also be online for this period, using a range of methods for staying in touch, such as telephone, email and the University’s web conferencing systems BigBlueButton and MSTeams.  

Pending Health Education England (HEE) approval, placements are currently expected to resume from September 2020 with minimum changes to planned delivery or timings. All students on placement will be expected to undertake a risk assessment and adhere to local Trust working patterns and guidance.   

To get the most from online study, hardware requirements have been established and communicated to all existing students and offer holders. Students will need their own personal computer or laptop and an internet connection in their place of accommodation. This needs to be in place at the start of the course. Once enrolled, students will have the ability to use Office 365 as part of our institutional licence, and access software required for their modules/courses via AppsAnywhere. In addition, we offer Office for Mac via Ofice365, but only the following applications are available for Mac: Teams, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, OneNote. Web-based Office applications are available on Mac. Full details are available here. There is a provision for students who may struggle to meet the hardware requirements to contact our IT Hardship team.

Risk assessment

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

Students with pre-existing illnesses or disabilities, or who are shielding

If you suffer, or have suffered, from a serious illness (physical or psychological) or have a disability, or have been required to shield due to Covid-19, please let us know. St George’s is committed to supporting our students and will explore all reasonable adjustments to support you to thrive on your course.

Please contact our Disability Advisor as soon as possible with details to help us establish whether your health history or disability is likely to affect your ability to study or practise. This will also give us sufficient time to carry out a detailed assessment, obtain reports and organise additional expert assessments if required.

Attendance at site

Most of our courses include elements of teaching for which you will be required to attend the University site. Attendance at these sessions will be essential to enable you to engage with the course and undertake assessments.

Placements

You will be required to undertake a personal risk assessment before you can attend any placement that is part of your course (or undertake certain other activities, such as those which include the practice of clinical skills or require the use of PPE). Where a health concern arises, every effort will be made to identify alternative placement arrangements, but your health and safety will be the first priority, and alternative arrangements may not be possible. This may have implications for the continuation of your study. If you are clinically vulnerable or have been shielding, we strongly encourage you to contact the Disability Advisor now to undertake an assessment.

Current students

Students with pre-existing illnesses or disabilities, or who are shielding

If you're a student with a pre-existing illness or disability, or who is shielding, your course team will contact you to ask if you would like to complete a personal risk assessment before you return to the site. If you suffer from a serious illness which may increase your level of risk, or have been required to shield due to Covid-19, we recommend that you complete a personal risk assessment. St George’s is committed to supporting our students and will explore all reasonable adjustments to support you to thrive on your course. 

Attendance at site

For the majority of our courses, we will be delivering an element of face to face, hands-on teaching on campus in line with social distancing guidelines which you are required to attend. If you will be unable to attend teaching on-site due to a health reason, you must let us know by the start of the academic year so we can consider alternative arrangements to ensure you progress through the course. Mitigating Circumstances can still be submitted for unforeseen illnesses; however, being unable to attend the site due to shielding or being at heightened risk from a pre-existing illness or disability will not be accepted as grounds for Mitigating Circumstances. Please discuss this with your course team and complete a personal risk assessment so that all reasonable adjustment can be made.

Placements 

You will be required to undertake a personal risk assessment before you can attend any placement (or undertake certain other activities, such as those including the practice of clinical skills or requiring the use of PPE) that is part of your course. Where a health concern arises, every effort will be made to identify alternative placements arrangements, but your health and safety will be the first priority, and where alternative arrangements are not possible, there may be implications for your studies. If you are clinically vulnerable or have been shielding, we strongly encourage you to contact your course team now to undertake a personal risk assessment.

Course length

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

At this stage, we expect to deliver the course within the planned timescales to enable successful students to progress through the programme and graduate without delay.

Some of our teaching includes clinical skills and communication sessions which are normally delivered face to face. We expect to continue to deliver all clinical skills sessions on the university site, face to face. However, for communication skills, a small selection of the essential communication skills will be delivered face to face on-site and the rest live online.

We cannot deliver anatomy and dissection room sessions on-site as we normally would, due to restrictions on room numbers. These will be delivered online, via a combination of live, pre-recorded and Q&A sessions. 

Our assessments are designed to be taken on-site. However, we have developed an alternative strategy to enable students to complete assessments remotely without coming on to campus. The exception to this is are the clinical examinations, which will continue to be delivered on-site.

On-site delivery is dependent on Government advice, and therefore planned face-to-face teaching and on-site assessments may be subject to change or cancellation. Should this happen we will, where possible, adapt them for online delivery. Where this is not possible, students may experience delays in progressing or graduating from the programme. We will do our best to minimise the impact on students.

Current students

At this stage, we expect to deliver the course within the planned timescales to enable successful students to progress through the programme and to graduate without delay.

As you are aware, some of our teaching includes sessions which are normally delivered face to face. It is anticipated that we will deliver any essential sessions that cannot be delivered online, face to face on site. You will be advised in advance of which sessions these will be.

For clinical programmes, placement providers will continue to offer placements as they have in the previous years. Their capacity to offer placements may change if, in the event of a further outbreak of Covid-19, delivering care to affected patients becomes the overriding priority for our partners. If that happens, we will limit the impact on students where possible. We will rotate students through the sites that are continuing to accept students. However, there is a possibility that graduation for some final year students may be delayed until they are able to complete all placements. A delay to placements may also impact when students can sit the PA National Examination.

Additional costs

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

We do not expect students to incur any extra costs over and above those that we have advertised on the course page.

As a result of our courses beginning with the majority of teaching online, you will need a personal laptop or computer and access to the internet to participate in online lectures. Information is available on recommended device specification. If you are worried you might struggle to meet these requirements, you should email IThardship@sgul.ac.uk so we can look at support options for you.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided for you if needed.

Current students

We do not expect students to incur any extra costs over and above the normal level, as previously advertised on the course page.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) will be provided for you if needed.

Assessment methods

View all Close all

Incoming students (starting September 2020)

We assess the knowledge, skills and attributes of our students in a variety of ways. These include formal written examinations, clinical examinations and coursework assessments which include case histories, reflections and oral presentations.  

Formal examinations are spread out over the year. At this stage, we expect to deliver these as planned. Although some assessments are designed to be taken on-site, we successfully developed an alternative assessment strategy in 2019/20 to enable students to complete assessments remotely without coming on to campus. For example, formal examinations were taken remotely by students within at a time of their choosing within a window stipulated by us. If the government advice on social distancing changes, we will take this approach again.

Current students

Assessments, where students are directly observed performing a practical or clinical skill by an examiner, can only be delivered on campus. Assessments of a student’s ability to communicate appropriately with a patient or simulated patient can also only be delivered on-site.

At this stage, we expect to be able to deliver assessments of this kind on site. However, if government advice changes and the campus is closed, we will not be able to deliver these assessments as planned. In that case, it might be possible to delay these assessments until the following academic year to protect student safety. However, this could mean that graduation and subsequently entry to the National PA examination for some final year students are delayed until they are able to complete all assessments. We have an obligation to the Faculty of Physician Associates to confirm that our students have met the clinical and practical outcomes for the programme before they apply to sit the PA National Examination.

Award

The Masters in Physician Associate Studies programme, is not accredited (there is currently no accreditation of PA university programmes in the UK) and so the changes that we are making will have no bearing on the qualification.

The profession is due to be regulated in Autumn 2021 by the General Medical Council. It is anticipated as part of this that there will be some sort of university accreditation process. The GMC have been provided with detailed information about our MPAS programme in preparation for this transition. The MPAS programme adheres to the standards set by the National Competency and Curriculum Framework for the Physician Assistant. This is the PA educational framework and guidance for Higher Education Institutions in the UK. Any changes that have been made or that will be made will follow the appropriate approval channel through university committees and reviewed by our external examiners.

In the meantime, all students are encouraged to join the student Managed Voluntary Register, overseen by the Faculty of Physician Associates at the Royal College of Physicians. We have checked that changes made to the programme continue to meet the Competence and Curriculum Framework standards, ensuring that graduates from the programme will be eligible to apply for the PA national examination and subsequent registration when they successfully complete their programme and the national examination.

Location of study

All face-to-face teaching will take place at St George’s, University of London, on the campus that we share with St George’s Hospital in Tooting, with appropriate social distancing measures in place. We have not explored alternative locations for teaching and have no immediate plans to do so. If government advice on social distancing changes, we will consider ways in which we can deliver teaching on-site in a manner that is safe for students and staff.

For clinical programmes, placement providers will continue to offer placements as they have in the previous years. We will use our existing procedures for allocating students to placements.
