This programme is dedicated to healthcare professionals working with children and adolescents with diabetes. It aims to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to provide high quality care for your young patients and support for their parents or carers.
The flexible, modular structure allows you to study over a period suited to your own professional needs and circumstances.
Taught by experts from Warwick Medical School in diabetes, child education, child advocacy and mental health, this is an interactive programme in which you will learn through seminars, group work and individual study.
WMS Masters courses are designed to provide a flexible education pathway to suit individual requirements and to take account of professional commitments. You can take the programme in one year, as a full-time student, or on a part-time basis over a period of three years.
