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.
