About this course
Clinician education remains an area which BMJ is strongly committed to. We help healthcare professionals make better clinical decisions on a daily basis. As well as condensing the latest medical evidence into an easily-accessible version for clinicians, we take it one step further by helping them grow their knowledge and skills. Through our courses offering, we hope to help many practicing clinicians to provide better care to their patients. We launched the six months certification course in diabetes in March 2016. We are now delighted to launch the three months certification course in chronic kidney disease in March 2018.
BMJ India has teamed up with Fortis C-DOC Centre of Excellence for Diabetes, Metabolic Diseases & Endocrinology in New Delhi & Royal College of Physicians [London], to provide educational support for health professionals to improve care for people with diabetes in India through the six months certification course in diabetes.
