The Imperial Diabetes Educator Training (IDET) Course at Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC) is a multi-disciplinary course to develop students for work as health professionals in the area of diabetes education and management. IDET is one of just a few courses in the UAE that has this status.
Over the duration of the course students will learn about chronic disease self-management education, applied biological and behavioural sciences, principles of teaching and learning, and best practice management of diabetes.
Studies will be complemented with 300 hours of clinical attachment with ICLDC physicians, dieticians and educators. This will equip students to provide competent diabetes related clinical care.
It is open to nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals. Graduates will be eligible for licensure as a Health Educator by Department of Health (DoH) Abu Dhabi (previously Health Authority – Abu Dhabi (HAAD).
