Dr Atanu Basu - PGDip in Endocrinology Course...

Student Profile(s)

Fiona Anthonypillai MSc, Endocrine Nurse (GB)

The PGDip in Endocrinology has exposed me to various endocrine conditions, clinical scenarios and conundrums that stretched my knowledge further and prompted further reading. The more I learnt the more I realised how complex the subject area is. I gained a lot of information from the course which has consolidated the knowledge I already had whilst introducing me to less common endocrine conditions.

Feedback from tutors was constructive and prompt and the admin team were extremely helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and am now in the process of undertaking the MSc in endocrinology. I would definitely recommend this course to others.

The online course suited me well as, although it was quite intensive, the case discussions were extremely valuable with tutor guidance. This suited my style of learning as it was active participation rather than passive attendance at lectures. Collaborating the group report with other students and undertaking the individual reports ensured that the subject areas were well researched. As the course was totally online based, there was no face to face interaction with fellow students. However, this was overcome by liaising with each other through the daily discussions and providing support to each other through the messaging facility.

Dr Mohamed Aly Elsherif MSc (QA)

Dr Elsherif is a practising endocrinologist in Dubai and wanted to formalise his knowledge by becoming certified in his specialty. At his Graduation Ceremony he explained why he chose Diploma MSc's MSc in Endocrinology: "I was recommended the course by a friend who had completed it and when I researched online the course looked very valuable. The fact I could complete the MSc in Endocrinology in 1 year made the course even more attractive."

Having not studied online before, Dr Elsherif initially found virtual learning strange and challenging to adapt to, but with the help of the Student Support Team, he quickly realised how useful it can be: "The Student Support Team played a key role in motivating me and showing me how learning online has some key benefits that make progressing your career alongside your job possible.”

Now Dr Elsherif in turn is more than happy to make the same recommendation as his friend: "As a doctor you are always learning, expanding your knowledge and upgrading your education, and this course's content and online nature is wonderful. Being able to learn alongside work is ideal as you can fit it around work schedules and implement what you're learning in clinic."
