Diabetes Education & Management

Welcome to the Diabetes Education & Management program


The Diabetes Education and Management Program offers an interprofessional Master of Science degree and an Advanced Certificate — solely online. Our unique programs were created to help current clinical professionals meet the needs of adults and children living with diabetes around the globe. 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 diabetes; how to develop, implement, and evaluate diabetes self-care management programs; and how to advocate for people with diabetes.
