Endocrinology Courses Online

Diploma MSc is a leading provider of online medical education for Postgraduate Diplomas and Masters courses. Working in conjunction with the University of South Wales, who have an established reputation for delivering innovative learning, we are able to offer 1 year part time Endocrinology courses than can be completed entirely online.

Studying with Diploma MSc allows you to advance your career in Endocrinology in your own time with 24/7 access through our online portal. The course is aimed at General Practitioners, Practice Nurses/ Specialist Nurses, Pharmacists and Dieticians.

The course aims to create professionals who can independently access information and use the information to improve understanding of endocrine care. It will prepare students to take a leadership role in the global context of endocrinology.

You can now also apply for our MSc qualification as a two-year course (undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma in your first year).

Postgraduate Diploma Course Structure

The Postgraduate Diploma course is based on the Royal College of Physicians Specialty Training curriculum. The online course lasts one calendar year and is a part time distance learning course. It consists of 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
Assessment

Online Diploma in Endocrinology

The course puts assessment at the heart of learning by using clinical scenarios to facilitate problem-solving, critical analysis and evidence-based care. The scenarios act as both the focus for learning and assessment thus embedding assessment within the learning process.

Each of the 6 modules has the same assessment format. Due to the online nature of the course, students are expected to login and participate in the course regularly throughout the module (ideally on a daily basis).

Students are split into groups of 10-15 students and are assigned a dedicated expert tutor who:

Facilitates clinical case discussions with the group.
Monitors, assesses and marks each student throughout the module.
Students use the skills gained during the lectures to engage with the different activities (see below).
Clinical case scenarios with case based discussion - 40%
Individual learning portfolio - 10%
Group/individual activity - 20%
Case based examination - 30%

Teaching Methods

Each module has the same format. Using an online platform and one tutor per 10-15 students, the self-directed distance learning is guided by tutor stimulated discussion based on clinically rich case scenarios. Group projects are undertaken alongside independent projects. Reflective practice is recorded in a reflective portfolio to help students consider how the learning can be translated into everyday work and practice.

Teaching starts with 1 day of introductory lectures. Students may attend these lectures in the UK (Glyntaff campus, University of South Wales) or South Africa (CDE Johannesburg).

The lecture series are delivered by the faculty and tutors, they are a pre-course organiser, giving students the tools required to undertake the online course such as:

Scientific writing.
Levels of evidence.
Harvard referencing.
Reflective writing.
The lectures series give an opportunity to meet face to face with tutors/other students prior to the online course.

Students are not required to attend the lectures however do benefit as they get a "jump start" to the course. Students who are not able to attend, should request a skype/telephone call to orientate them onto the course and are advised to review the lecture slides.

MSc Course Structure

Module 1 - Research Methodologies and Critical Appraisal
Module 2 - Professional Project

Teaching Methods

Module 1 - Research Methodologies in Endocrinology

MSc teaching methods for this module are similar to the PG Diploma course modules however it is run over 12 weeks.

Module 2 - Professional Project

To produce the professional project, students continue to use the online course however much of the work is self-directed.

Students are expected in the first 8 weeks to interact with their tutor on a weekly basis. Students select a specific project and submit a project summary/proposal (approximately 1500 words).

Once the proposal has been approved, the professional project (10,500 words) itself is then completed through online guidance and supervision offered by the tutor. The student and tutor will interact regularly (weekly) on the dedicated students/tutor discussion area or through any other means of communication deemed appropriate by both parties (telephone/SKYPE/email). Note of any verbal communication with the tutor is recorded on the student's journal by the student.
