Course detail

- Description -

The part-time PgCert in Diabetes provides an in-depth understanding of core principles underlying the scientific basis of diabetes and diabesity in clinical practice, covering key aspects in the cellular and biochemical events in insulin secretion and action, pharmacology of diabetes therapies and the clinical diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of this major chronic metabolic condition. The part-time PgCert in Diabetes will be taken over two academic semesters with students taking one 30-credit point module per semester over one academic year. In semester one, students will study the specialist diabetes module Diabetes: Science and Therapeutics (30 credit points). This will be followed by the module Evidence-Based Practice in Healthcare Science (30 credit points) in semester two. Following successful completion of both modules (60 credits) the student will exit with a Postgraduate Certificate in Diabetes.

- Teaching and learning assessment -

Core material will be delivered through online lectures complemented by online discussion boards, problem-based learning scenarios, independent study, and module assignments. The programme is based on 100% coursework which will be used to assess outcomes and facilitate learning and integration of knowledge. Structured coursework will include literature-based assignments, multiple-choice questions, problem-based learning, essays and other formative coursework as appropriate.

Career options

The academic content of this programme will provide a new opportunity for students to specialise further in their own scientific field and will provide them with the confidence to compete for higher specialist post, as they arise in the Health Services and Industry.
