Physician Associate Studies PGDip, MSc
Physician Associates (PAs) are healthcare professionals, trained in a generalist medical model to deliver care and treatment within hospital and community environments. A PA works independently, under the supervision of a senior doctor, to diagnose, manage and treat a range of patients as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Once qualified, PAs may also develop a specialist area of practice. Entry requirements: 2:1 honours degree in a biomedical or health science related subject (e.g. biomedical science, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, healthcare science, pharmacy, audiology, nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy). All applicants should hold GCSE qualifications in Maths and English at grade B or equivalent - The PGDip course is a full-time; two year programme of experiential learning where students engage with a range of teaching methodologies linked to clinical cases and associated skills. Both years follow a programme of clinical teaching with integrated placements in primary and secondary care with hospitals and GP practices. Students will gain a broad understanding of clinical environments including: General Medical; Acute Medicine; General Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Mental Health. Students complete their PGDip over two years before sitting their National Exam, they then have up to another 12 months to complete their research project for the award of an MSc.

Medical Engineering Design MSc, PgDip
If you have ever spent some time in hospital, you are probably unaware that you were the beneficiary of medical devices that have been designed and developed by Medical Engineering Designers. Everything from the bed you lie on to the MRI scanner that shows your insides on a screen, to the blood pressure monitor, to the scalpel and will have had input from Medical Engineering Designers. The aim of the MSc in Medical Engineering Design is to convert you into a Medical Engineering Designer so that you can work in this exciting and highly regulated design discipline. Entry Requirements: This is a “conversion” course and therefore, you need not have an engineering degree to apply. You must have a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) based degree, which could be anything from Biomedical Science, through to Forensic Science, to Computer Science. Of course, if you have an engineering degree you can still apply. We welcome applications with a first or second-class degree (or equivalent) in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics) discipline. We also welcome enquiries from people with other professional qualifications acceptable to the University. The course is run by the School of Medicine in collaboration with the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine. Teaching takes place at the Guy Hilton Research Centre, a dedicated research facility located on the Royal Stoke University Hospital site, and also at the main University Campus. Core modules include: Advanced Engineering Applications, Creative Engineering Design, Experimental research Methodology, Engineering for Medical Applications and a Research Project.
