We are delighted to announce the re-opening of the Physician Associate Studies (was Physician Assistant) programme from January 2014.
The programme is being re-opened in partnership with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust) and with other hospitals and practices in the Midlands.
