Welcome to the Program in Diabetes Education and Management
The Diabetes Education and Management Program offers an interdisciplinary 36-credit Master of Science degree — solely online. We equip clinicians and care managers with a greater understanding of how diabetes develops and evolves across different populations; how to help patients live well with their illness; how to develop, implement, and evaluate diabetes self-care management programs; and how to conduct advocacy at the national, state, and local levels. The program is offered entirely online.

Certificate in Advanced Diabetes Topics
