Cardiff University MSc in Advanced Diabetes Studies

The MSc in Advanced Diabetes Studies follows on from the hugely successful Diploma in Diabetes, and will appeal to all who wish to pursue careers as experts, leaders and innovators in the field of diabetes. Most diploma graduates highly value the regular interaction and make enduring friendships, and the MSc not only offers the opportunity for health care professionals to remain part of this clinical community, but also to continue to develop the ability to pursue life-long personal and professional development. The academic programme caters for individuals committed to delivering excellence in clinical care whilst also laying a foundation for those who wish to further develop their ability to critically evaluate the evidence behind current diabetes clinical practice, develop new or local guidelines, analyse local audits, quality improvement projects and datasets, and undertake future research in diabetes.

The part-time, distance learning course begins in March each year and runs over a period of 12 months. In keeping with the diploma design, this programme is also delivered entirely online to allow individuals to flexibly tailor learning to their individual needs. The course commences with an initial taught section where candidates will develop their knowledge and skills in analysis methodologies, critical appraisal and scientific writing. This will be followed by completion of the Masters dissertation.

The faculty invite you to join this exciting programme and become part of an expanding international clinical network committed to delivering the highest standards of care in diabetes.
