Welcome message from Prof. Steve Davies
"Learna have developed this innovative Mastercourse in diabetes that offers busy clinicians a cost and time effective way of upskilling in diabetes practice without committing to a more intensive diploma." Prof. Davies.
Dr. Atul Kalhan
Built on the success of our Postgraduate Diploma and MSc Diabetes Courses, we have been approached by many healthcare professionals interested in a condensed course. In response to this demand, we are pleased to announce a 12 week Mastercourse to provide knowledge and skills in diabetes, which may also be a footing for further education.
In 2016, the World Health Organisation (WHO) Global report on diabetes estimated that 422 million people had known diabetes in 2014. With improved understanding of the pathophysiology of the condition and the rapidly emerging therapies, there is no better time to improve your knowledge and clinical skills to tackle this pandemic.
Our objective of the Mastercourse is to help you develop your clinical skills in this rapidly evolving disease area. The course is delivered as a structured 12-week online programme, completed with a final online exam.
About the Course
The Mastercourse on Diabetes and related disorders is designed as a stepping-stone towards advanced training programs (Diploma, MSc & PhD). In view of lack of a well-designed basic training educational course in diabetes there has been a lot of demand from primary care physicians.
The course aims at satisfying those needs and will address the basic issues faced in the clinics on a day-to-day basis.
We hope that this course would be helpful in sharpening clinical skills and would impart confidence while dealing with a variety of diverse clinical scenarios.

Welcome message from Dr. Samit Ghosal
Learna, through our two educational platforms Diploma MSc and StudyPRN, is an award winning provider of online learning. Based at the Medicentre, Cardiff UK, we have been delivering high-quality flexible medical education to healthcare professionals since 2010, promoting lifelong learning and personal development. Since 2010 over 1000 students have progressed their medical career by enrolling in one of our courses.
Utilising this expertise and working with national and international opinion leaders, the 12-week Mastercourse offers busy clinicians a cost and time effective way of upskilling in the clinical management of diabetes without committing to a more intensive Postgraduate Diploma or MSc.
Be warned though, our students find our style of learning addictive and once exposed, many choose to progress to other courses including the Postgraduate Diploma and MSc programmes.
The objectives of the Mastercourse are to help you:
enhance your understanding regarding current concepts in pathophysiology and management of this chronic condition.
to improve your concepts regarding evidence based strategies and make you familiar with internationally accepted guidelines.
with knowledge regarding available therapeutic options tailored to individual patient needs.
