Student Profiles

Dr Ana Cristina Diniz Silva MSc, Tutor (BR)

The Postgraduate Diploma in Obesity and Weight Management has been a great opportunity of knowledge recycling in an exciting and challenging area of the medical sciences! With an innovative method of distance learning, we discuss theory and clinical cases in the light of the evidence-based practice, using the resources of a complete online library. In fact, it is a very effective and stimulating way of learning!

More than improving my clinical skills in the assessment and management of the obese patient, since the beginning of the course, I have submitted five papers for publication in international medical journals. In the current month of June 2016, I will have three of them published: two of them in the South American Journal of Public Health, and the other one, together with my course colleagues Tan, Bongiwe and Nada, in the Diabetes and Primary Care (UK). I feel very happy with such achievement, which will greatly improve my curriculum and increase my chances of being approved in a future PhD programme.

"Learning from peers in your assigned group really widens your potential learning experience. You all grow together through the year, and feel like a family too. It's a very supportive environment. Looking forward to my second year."

I have just finished the PgDip in dermatology with Diploma MSc and can say that the structure and learning from their courses are fantastic.
