About

The MSc Diabetes Care and Management at Glasgow Caledonian University is multidisciplinary, bringing together key insights from multiple fields. You'll learn about best practices in diabetes care and management from a broad range of perspectives.

  • Understand the biology of the disease
  • Learn about preventing, diagnosing and managing diabetes
  • Recognise diabetes complications
  • Explore the latest research in the field
  • Survey up-to-date advances in management and care
  • Acquire the skills to collaborate on active research

Keeping the programme career-focused, our diabetes care and management masters students undertake a number of clinical attachments at local hospitals. This opportunity helps them solidify their skills and make a positive impact on patients in a real-world setting. The final Project/Dissertation Diabetes module gives students the opportunity to obtain an enhanced understanding of an area of diabetes or to undertake a clinical audit in collaboration with local diabetes consultants.

Our graduates go on to do good work in general practice, hospitals and industry. Some choose to study for the UK General Medical Council exams (PLAB 1 and 2) and go on to work in the NHS.
