What you will study
The integration of theory and practice is deemed fundamental to clinical learning.
The theory is delivered via blended learning with a mix of lectures, small group tutorials and problem-based learning at RCSI’s St Stephen’s Green Campus. Your clinical experience will be in both hospital and community attachments.
Throughout the programme, there is a focus on patient care, working across healthcare environments, and the variety and scope within your role as a PA.
The Physician Associate Studies programme is run over two full calendar years with a total of 30 days annual leave, dispersed throughout. Due to clinical rotations and academic commitments, there is no summer break as in some other RCSI Postgraduate programmes.
