Karl Guttormsen

MSc Advanced Clinical Practice | 2020

"The MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice equips you for the rigors of working at an advanced level of practice. It has given me the tools to advance my career and my scope of practice, in a way that is interesting, structured and fun. The course content is fantastic; a great mix of medicine, clinical examination skills and academic writing.

The lecturers are beyond supportive; they facilitate a team environment that has helped forge friendships that will last a lifetime. The quality of teaching has been phenomenal. Through the commitment and encouragement of the lecturers, my academic writing has improved immensely. It has resulted in my final year project being accepted for publication and I have received several invitations to present at national conferences! "

Amalia Gervasutti

MSc Physician Associate | 2019

"I like that there is a lot of academic support which helps to facilitate my learning. There is also excellent guidance with practical skills. The self-directed learning aspects are well balanced with the lecture-delivered content. The content that is delivered in lectures is done by leading professionals in the medical industry. Further, because of the close relationship of the Trust with the university, there has been real progress in establishing the role in practice.

I would recommend it because it’s a developing role, with increasing demand. I also believe that it would be very rewarding making a difference not only to individual patients but to our health care system."

Lee Greenwood

MSc in Advanced Practice | 2019

"I have chosen the University of Bolton to study at MSc in Advanced Practice for a number of reasons. On researching the course, I found that the university has been voted the number 1 in the Greater Manchester area and currently holds the title of the University of the Year in the area.

Furthermore, I was recommended by a fellow colleague who had completed the MSc in Advanced practice to attend Bolton. Positive traits such as supportive, friendly, accessible, going the extra mile, ease of web-based learning and cost-effective were the main drivers for me to want to attend."

Charlotte Cain

MSc Physician Associate | 2019

"I chose a career as a PA following my Natural Sciences undergraduate degree, as I wanted to transfer my biological knowledge into a more clinical career. I have always been interested in healthcare and working with people.

I applied to the University of Bolton, as it has a good reputation for health courses and works closely with Bolton Hospital, which is highly regarded. I enjoy being taught by lecturers from different backgrounds, which provides me with a wealth of knowledge. I have become more independent, due to the high level of self-directed learning and the course has increased my confidence, due to learning many new skills.

I would recommend the course because we have small class sizes and are well supported. Also, the course had provided me with the opportunity to gain new skills and knowledge in preparation for practice."

Nuno Costa

MSc Physician Associate | 2019

"I had a feeling that the University of Bolton was the right place to study and I wasn't wrong! Did I choose Bolton or did Bolton choose me? What I like about the course at Bolton is the small class, lots of support from the tutors and being part of a group that will have a strong impact in the community. After all, we are the pioneers.

It has changed my learning significantly because every time I go for placements at the hospital I feel that what I'm learning in class really makes sense. I feel I am able to make a difference in someone's life in the future, this doesn't have any price."

Zaheer Abbas

MSc Physician Associate | 2020

"I would like to thank all the tutors for their efforts, hard work, commitment and dedication shown to deliver this efficient course.

I really do think the standards of teaching, professionalism, and attention to detail in the delivery of the content are reflective of the end result; physician associates of exceptionally high professional standards.
