Key Course Facts
Our PG Certificate and PG Diploma in Diabetes aim to equip you with the skills you need to provide high-quality care for diabetes patients, while also enabling you to develop your knowledge in other relevant areas of healthcare such as medical education, public health or leadership and management, if this is something that appeals to you.
Course overview This course is designed for specialist nurses, GPs, hospital doctors and other health professionals involved in the care of people with diabetes.
For your PG Certificate, you'll either study three diabetes-focused modules, or two diabetes modules and one module on a different (but related) topic.
After this, if you wish to continue your study you can progress to the PG Diploma.
Our flexible, modular structure allows you to study over a period suited to your own professional needs and circumstances. Taught by experts in diabetes from Warwick Medical School, this is an interactive programme where you will learn through seminars, group work and individual study.
