About

The MSc in Diabetes from Cardiff University is designed specifically for doctors and other healthcare professionals who have completed the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) in Diabetes and wish to pursue further studies in this field.

Overview

The MSc in Diabetes from Cardiff University aims to:

  • Develop students’ critical independence and intellectual integrity with specific reference to diabetes and applied diabetes research.
  • Develop an enthusiastic and supportive online community of medical healthcare professionals with an interest in diabetes health care, linked via a learning environment that promotes clinical and academic collaboration extending beyond the life of the programme.
  • Develop an international community of doctors and other healthcare professionals equipped with the skill set to become leaders and innovators in the field of diabetes.
  • Establish a stimulating environment for research, teaching and education about diabetes.
  • Encourage a culture for training of health care professionals by the development of a network of experienced clinical teachers.

This part-time, distance-learning MSc runs over a period of 12 months. The MSc will begin with an introductory section (approximately 12 weeks) where you will be able to develop your knowledge and skills in analysis methodologies, critical appraisal and scientific writing.

You will then proceed to writing your Master’s dissertation of up to 20,000 words over the remainder of the year. 

This can be in the form of either:

  • Primary data analysis using an existing dataset (to which either the student or the supervisor has access and all appropriate ethical and legal clearance to use),OR 
  • A systematic literature review with appraisal of published evidence, leading to guideline development.

Distinctive features

  • A stimulating environment for research, teaching and education about diabetes.
  • An enthusiastic and supportive online community of medical healthcare professionals with an interest in diabetes health care, linked via a learning environment.

Career prospects

This Masters programme enables you to demonstrate you are taking the opportunity to develop your abilities in critical analysis, problem-solving, decision-making, finding and using evidence and in dealing with complex issues.

Whilst we do not formally assess clinical skills or competencies in a face-to-face context (so the programme is not a substitute for a formal specialty training programme), studying at this level should help successful students demonstrate numerous academic skills that should be highly regarded in relation to their career development and progression.

In particular, the programme offers opportunities to demonstrate the development of knowledge and skills in relation to the application of evidence-based medicine and the potential enhancement of services and governance frameworks. As such, it should provide evidence of commitment and potential that may assist you in relation to taking on greater responsibilities or perhaps seeking management, research, scholarship, or leadership roles.
