Diploma MSc is a collaborative partner of the University of South Wales and on successful completion of this course, you will receive Renal Medicine (Online) Postgraduate Diploma from Diploma.

Do you feel out of your comfort zone when a patient displays symptoms of kidney problems? Would you like to improve your management of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease patients? Could your organisation benefit from a renal specialist? If so, this Renal Medicine Postgraduate Diploma can help.

In clinical practice, kidney disease is encountered frequently by the non-kidney specialist, especially as it is as a complication of common conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

  • Diagnose and treat patients with symptoms of kidney disease with confidence, without being a kidney specialist.
  • Use your new knowledge and skills to prevent or reduce the progression of chronic kidney disease and ensure timely referral to secondary care.
  • Help treat dialysis and transplant patients from a primary care perspective.
  • Consolidate your knowledge to ensure best patient care and service outcomes.
