Course content

The Diabetes Care, Education and Management programme has been created by the University of Dundee to aid healthcare organisations who wish to equip their workforce with the clinical knowledge, leadership and educational skills required to meet this challenge and develop a multi-disciplinary approach to creating transformational change appropriate to the healthcare system in their country.

The course will enable doctors and health care professionals with an interest in diabetes to acquire a sound knowledge base of the subject. This is achieved by providing the opportunity to examine up to date clinical information and aspects of treatment and referral guidelines for diabetes and diabetic complications as seen in practice. Students will be given knowledge and skills and also the opportunity to develop materials and evaluate aspects of diabetes care.

A variety of teaching methods will be used, including: small group teaching, supervised study, tutorial sessions, seminars, presentations, invited speakers and discussion groups, lectures, practical classes and demonstrations.

One-on-one supervision of a literature review, a mini-project and a dissertation by a single tutor is designed to promote continuity in the learning experiences provided. Learning methods will include oral and written presentations, peer assessments of oral presentations, problem-solving assignments and feedback, and interactive computer assignments.
