About This Course

Objective of the course: To train Healthcare Professionals adopt a holistic approach towards Diabetes.

As India is on the verge of being the Diabetic capital of the world with 72 million diabetic cases and prevalence rate of 8.8 %, there is strong need for healthcare professionals who are trained in managing the ever-increasing disease burden. The government has proposed plans to build capacity by training the doctors and enhancing their skills.

The conservative curriculum in medical colleges /universities is not always designed to address the clinical situations in real life and there is always a need for interaction with subject matter experts in the relevant areas.

Doctors can keep themselves abreast of the latest developments in medical science and technology through this course and reorient themselves to the dynamic healthcare environment. It also helps a practitioner access the vast scientific literature available on the web and facilitates his interaction with experienced physicians globally.
