The Postgraduate Diploma in Endocrinology from the University of South Wales is designed to be very practical and clinically focused.

This part-time online course aims to help the student to become an important advocate in the delivery of care to people with endocrinology related problems.

On completion of the diploma, students have:

a greater confidence and understanding of the management of patients with endocrine disorders through case studies and discussion.
improved critical analysis of published data and data interpretation.

The postgraduate diploma course is based on the Royal College of Physicians Specialty Training curriculum – with major revision 2011.pdf curriculum. The online course lasts one calendar year and is a part time distance learning course, with 6 modules per year, each of 6 weeks duration.

Module 1 – Disorders of the Hypothalamus and Pituitary
Module 2 – Disorders of the thyroid
Module 3 – Disorders of the adrenals
Module 4 – Disorders of parathyroids, calcium and bone
Module 5 – Reproductive endocrinology
Module 6 – Endocrine-related cancer

Teaching begins with 2 days of introductory lectures. Students will attend these lectures in the UK (Glyntaff campus, University of Glamamorgan). This allows the students to meet with the tutors and their peers with whom they will become more familiar over the duration of the online course. Tutors introduce both the module content and the online learning environment to students.

For the continuing online course, candidates are split into groups of 10-15 students. Each group is supervised by a tutor who facilitates the group, monitors and assesses each student throughout the module. Students are assessed across the following components of the module:

Clinical case scenarios with case based discussion
Individual learning portfolio
Group/individual activity
Case based Examination
