Conducted through the School of Medicine, this clinically focused course is designed for multidisciplinary clinicians including Registered Nurses, Dietitians, Podiatrists, Exercise Physiologist, Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Registered Midwives,  Medical Officers  and Aboriginal Health Workers who would like to specialise in diabetes clinical care and education.

In addition to examining the aetiology, pathophysiology, clinical assessment and management of different types of diabetes and short and long term complications, this course will also explore self-management support at the system, organisational and individual levels.

This unique course is associated with a high level of clinical expertise and world class research in diabetes, care, education and prevention, led by Distinguished Professor David Simmons, a global leader in diabetes care and research.

Course coordinators are practicing Credentialled Diabetes Educators (CDE). In addition, the course advisory committee consists of diabetes specialised multidisciplinary clinicians.

This mainly online course will be run over one year, on a part time basis commencing in July 2019.
