Gastroenterology Courses Online
Diploma MSc is an award-winning provider of online medical education for Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Courses. We are now pleased to add a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters Course in Gastroenterology to our expanding range of courses. Our online Gastroenterology courses are offered in conjunction with our partner, the University of South Wales, who have developed a strong reputation for delivering innovative learning.
The Postgraduate Diploma and MSc Online course in Gastroenterology has been designed to help physicians interested in the field of Gastroenterology to further their knowledge and improve their clinical judgement.
This theoretical course is designed to facilitate a better understanding of common gastroenterology disorders typically found in the community and will enable students to up-skill in diagnostic and management of gastroenterological disorders. Students will also be able to be better equipped to read and interpret endoscopy reports, an increasingly important element of practice. This is not a course that will assess or develop endoscopic procedures as this is not the focus nor would it be possible to achieve without residential training and supervision. This course is therefore designed to improve knowledge which is an essential complement to clinical practice.
With increasing competition for employment in the healthcare arena, and increasing specialisation, the purpose of the course is to promote and enhance professional skills and knowledge amongst students that have a direct relevance and application to the demands of their working roles.
Applicants taking our courses in gastroenterology will typically be GPs, doctors, nurses, physicians and pharmacists. For healthcare professionals who successfully complete a qualification, career progression would likely be facilitated, as well as the direct opportunity to improve patient care.
Students may apply for the MSc in Gastroenterology as a two-year course, firstly completing the Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits), followed by the MSc (60 credits).
