Postgraduate Diploma / MSc Programme
Endocrinology and Diabetes Mellitus

An exciting programme offered by:

The William Harvey Research Institute

Barts and the London School of Medicine

Designed for Higher Medical Trainees in Endocrinology and Diabetes Mellitus, in the UK and abroad

* Part-time Distance Learning Programme
* Novel and Flexible Learning Activities
* A taught course (leading to Postgraduate Diploma from the University of London)
* An optional independent research project (leading to an MSc from the University of London)
* The programme is compatible with the JRCPTB (Joint Royal College of Physicians Training Board) syllabus in Endocrinology and Diabetes Mellitus, in particular the aspects covered by the 'knowledge-based examination' although completion of the course does not itself form any part of the specialist accreditation process

The Postgraduate Diploma is designed as a complete curriculum in endocrinology and diabetes, both for new entrants to these fields, as well as an update and extension for those already familiar with them. The programme provides clinicians with theoretical and clinically applied aspects of their discipline, and incorporates elements of the UK specialty training curriculum for endocrinology and diabetes mellitus. It also includes aspects of the knowledge-based examination required for Royal College Certification. There is a focus on up to date developments in the field with expert opinions and presentations.

In addition, students taking the MSc complete a project on a topic to be approved by the programme organiser which is conducted at the candidate’s home institution. The project is examined in the form of written dissertation of approximately 10,000 words and a viva.

Speciality conferences

During the course of all MD programmes, the teaching plans of individual specialities include attendance at a number of internationally recognised speciality medical conferences within the UK. This affords the MD fellows the opportunity to hear lectures and debates and attend workshops involving internationally renowned speakers on matters of contemporary interest, and to experience the controversies of cutting-edge research in the medical specialities concerned.

Grand Rounds (Ealing Hospital)

At lunch-time each Thursday a Grand Round presentation takes place at Ealing Hospital Postgraduate Centre, in the tradition of all prestigious British postgraduate medical teaching establishments. Consultant staff from medical specialities lead presentations of interesting and unusual clinical cases, followed by a lively session of questions and debate on medical issues raised. Some of the sessions are provided by invited medical speakers of international reputation. Recent advances in medical practice and a wide range of controversial and topical medical issues are discussed with the benefit of authoritative input from senior medical colleagues. This extremely valuable educational resource is part of the routine weekly schedule for all MD fellows.

Accreditation

The Quality Assurance Agency, QAA, is an independent body which checks the quality of UK higher education through an institutional audit. The University of Buckingham voluntarily takes part in this audit process.
