Studies will be complemented with 300 cases 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 workers with a current licence to practice. Graduates will be eligible to be licenced as Health Educators by the Department of Health - Abu Dhabi (DOH).
