Gastroenterology Courses Online

Diploma MSc is an award-winning provider of online medical education for Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Courses. We are now pleased to add a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Course in Gastroenterology to our expanding range of courses. Our online Gastroenterology courses are offered in conjunction with our partner, the University of South Wales, who have developed a strong reputation for delivering innovative learning.

The Postgraduate Diploma and MSc Online course in Gastroenterology has been designed to help physicians interested in the field of Gastroenterology to further their knowledge and improve their clinical judgement.

This theoretical course is designed to facilitate a better understanding of common gastroenterology disorders typically found in the community and will enable students to up-skill in diagnostic and management of gastroenterological disorders. Students will also be able to be better equipped to read and interpret endoscopy reports, an increasingly important element of practice. This is not a course that will assess or develop endoscopic procedures as this is not the focus nor would it be possible to achieve without residential training and supervision. This course is therefore designed to improve knowledge which is an essential complement to clinical practice.

With increasing competition for employment in the healthcare arena, and increasing specialisation, the purpose of the course is to promote and enhance professional skills and knowledge amongst students that have a direct relevance and application to the demands of their working roles.

Applicants taking our courses in gastroenterology will typically be GPs, doctors, nurses, physicians and pharmacists. For healthcare professionals who successfully complete a qualification, career progression would likely be facilitated, as well as the direct opportunity to improve patient care.

Postgraduate Diploma in Gastroenterology

The Postgraduate Diploma in Gastroenterology has been specifically designed to help physicians interested in the field of Gastroenterology to further their knowledge and improve their clinical judgement. We believe that the course answers the need for enhancing professional skills and knowledge in the field of gastroenterology, as there is increasing competition for employment in the healthcare arena, as well as increasing specialisation.

On completion of the gastroenterology postgraduate course, you will be able to:

  • Articulate professional decisions, incorporating an evidence based rationale, in a variety of diverse and complex situations related to gastroenterology.
  • Demonstrate the critical application of gastroenterology research to clinical practice.
  • Apply life-long learning and advanced problem solving skills to clinical practice.
  • Demonstrate leadership in the delivery and advancement of gastroenterology related care.
  • Demonstrate leadership of teams in multi-agency, multi-cultural and/or international contexts.
  • Demonstrate evaluation skills in the delivery of care to patients

Course Structure

Module 1 - Oesophagus

Module 2 - Stomach

Module 3 - Pancreas

Module 4 - Liver

Module 5 - Small bowel and nutrition

Module 6 - Colon

Assessment

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 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)

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 those who attend 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 in Gastroenterology

The gastroenterology masters course provides a progression route from the Postgraduate Diploma course in Gastroenterology.

The MSc in Gastroenterology runs over 1 calendar year. Starting with an initial 12-week online module to develop skills in critical appraisal and knowledge of research methodologies, students then choose either the professional project module which consists of a 1,500 word proposal and 10,500 word professional.

On completion of our Masters in Gastroenterology, you will be able to:

  • Develop graduates who can articulate professional decisions, incorporating an evidence based rationale, in a variety of diverse and complex situations related to gastroenterology.
  • Critical application of gastroenterology research to clinical practice.
  • Articulation of professional decisions, incorporating evidence based rationale, in a variety of diverse and complex situations related to gastroenterology.
  • Application of life-long learning and advanced problem solving skills to clinical practice.
  • Leadership in the delivery and advancement of gastroenterology related care.
  • Leadership of teams in multi-agency, multi-cultural and/or international contexts.
  • Evaluation skills in the delivery of care to patients.

Course Structure

Module 1 - Research Methodologies and Critical Appraisal: Gastroenterology
