It is envisaged that most students will be in current clinical practice and will either be in endocrine-related posts or aspiring to such positions.

As such, this course has direct relevance to the scientific foundations and clinical practice of endocrinology, so it will assist in career development and specialisation.

The curriculum maps to the higher training curriculum and so will help build a firm basis of understanding and knowledge for candidates working towards Specialty Certificate Examinations.

The programme does not result in accreditation or entry on the UK specialist register. These require enrolment into work-based programmes organised by the UK Deaneries.
