Education and training
Our Institute is creating innovative online offers that will be available across the globe, with educational resources that are tailored to students learning needs.
King’s College London has a long history of setting the national and international standards for diabetes, nutrition and metabolic clinical education.
We are developing a world-class education offer, including a TransCampus PhD programme and the provision of an unrivalled range of multidisciplinary postgraduate education modular programmes and short courses in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic medicine.
Post Graduate modules in advanced endocrinology and obesity
In Autumn 2020, we are launching an internationally recognised multi-disciplinary online programme. The programme is being developed by leading clinical academics, and will include stackable educational modules spanning mental and physical health in diabetes, endocrinology and obesity. This programme will be suitable for a wide range of healthcare professionals, nationally and internationally. More detailed information on the course will be available in late Summer 2020.
The King’s Health Partners Learning Hub offers free courses to help our staff work with patients to prevent and manage diabetes, including:
- Addressing Obesity in a Consultation shows how to broach the topic sensitively and effectively with patients and devise a patient-centred action plan to prevent diabetes developing
