About the Course

India leads the world with largest number of diabetic subjects earning the dubious distinction of being termed the “”Diabetes capital of the world.”” The latest global figures on diabetes released by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has raised a serious alarm for India by saying that nearly 52% of Indians aren’t aware that they are suffering from high blood sugar. India is presently home to 65 million diabetics, second only to China which is home to 98.4 million diabetics. By 2030, India’s diabetes numbers are expected to cross the 100 million mark.
Due to these sheer numbers, the economic burden due to diabetes in India is amongst the highest in the world. The real burden of the disease is however due to its associated complications which lead to increased morbidity and mortality. WHO estimates that mortality from diabetes, heart disease and stroke costs about $210 billion every year in India and is expected to increase to $335 billion in the next ten years.
IMACGP has launched the Fellowship program in Diabetes Mellitus to equip the doctors with the latest, clinically relevant information in the field and it will give them a detailed insight into the disease, its complications and its management.

Target Audience

General Practitioners, MBBS Doctors.

Why should I join Fellowship in Diabetes mellitus/how does FDM help me?

Diabetes is one of the common disorders noticed nowadays among all ages, both the sexes and even children, due to the stressful life-style that we lead. The first contact for a patient and the family would be the neighbourhood General Practitioner. One-year course  in Diabetes mellitus would help the GPs in tackling majority of the patients with Diabetes in their own place of practice, rather than referring them to a specialist.

What is the course duration?

Fellowship in Diabetes mellitus  [FDM] is a one year course affiliated to Martin Luther Christian University.

Are there any contact sessions? If yes, where will they be? What would be the duration of these contact sessions?

Clinical rotations are the live contact sessions for the students. They have been positioned very strategically on week-ends and on a bi-monthly basis, so that there are as many as 6 such sessions in a 1-year Fellowship course. These contact sessions provide a student with ample hands-on experience as well as tutelage under senior specialist doctors in the concerned disciplines.
The course content is so structured that what the student learns in the first 2 months shall lead him to the first clinical rotation, where the student will get hands-on experience with the bed-side events on the basics of Diabetes. The student will learn about operating the Glucometer and the techniques of Insulin administration. The student will also have a ‘live’ interaction with a Diabetic patient, and will learn/ update the nuances of history taking.
The students will practically learn the clinical applications applicable to the management of Diabetes outside the hospital environment. The students shall be able to apply these principles in their day-to-day clinical practice while dealing with Diabetic patients.

As a Fellow of Diabetes mellitus, am I eligible to conduct independent Diabetic camps in my practicing area?

Most certainly yes, you would be able conduct independent Diabetic camps.

Would the certification of this course help me in enhancing my career?

The 1 year Fellowship course in Diabetes enhances your knowledge and builds your skills to the next level of proficiency, so that you would be better placed to offer your services in the speciality of Diabetes.

Can I pursue other courses along with this course?

Yes, the student can pursue more than one course if he so desires; but it is recommended that the student takes up one course at a time so that he copes up with the lesson plans and assessments.

What if I am not able to attend a particular clinical rotation?

Participation in clinical rotations would give you the much-needed bed-side experiences that enhance your patient management skills and would be a compulsory part of the formative assessments. It would certainly reflect on your grades and you will be losing out on the overall weightage.
You would be allowed to attend the same clinical rotation along with students of the next batch, but at your own expense.

Would I be able to communicate with the teacher or with other students?

At any point of time, the course structure is so designed as to give you an opportunity to pose any queries to the Course Director. The Call Centre shall help to get your query answered within 24 hours.
There is a provision to communicate with other students through an open Discussion Forum.

What sort of computer would I need to take up this course?

The entire course content will be delivered on a 7” Tab and the Tab would be provided to all the students who enroll for the course, without any additional fee.

What are the trouble shooting options for the student?

The Tab will have a detailed Navigation tutorial, which takes you through all the operations on the Tab, despite which if there are any problems with the Tab, you can always pose a query to the Call Centre, which will ensure that your problem is resolved within 24 hours.

What is the pattern of assessments for this course?

The 1-year Fellowship course in Diabetes Mellitus follows a set pattern of formative and summative assessments/examinations. Following are the types of assessments/examinations that each candidate is subjected to:
Self assessments: These are scheduled online at the end of every lecture and are not timed and graded. These assessments help the candidates in assessing themselves on how much they grasped the lecture, know where to refocus, study, understand and assimilate. They are strongly advised to be taken up but it is not a compulsion.
Weekend assessments: Each week of the course concludes with an online weekend assessment. Candidates will be questioned on all the topics covered in that week. There are a predetermined number of MCQs to be answered in a stipulated period of time. All the weekend assessments that precede a spell of clinical rotation have to be completed and submitted by the weekend preceding that of the clinical rotations, submission beyond which marks will not be awarded. These are graded and once submitted cannot be reattempted for a better score. The scores will carry considerable weightage towards formative assessments of theory.
Semester-end assessments: These are graded online assessments scheduled at the end of every semester. Candidates will be questioned on all the topics covered in that semester. There are a predetermined number of MCQs to be answered in a stipulated period of time. Once submitted, they cannot be reattempted for a better score. The score will carry weightage towards formative assessments of theory.
Weekend and Semester-end assessments are part of formative assessment of theory and constitute 60% of final score on theory, the balance 40% being covered by the final theory examination.

Course-end Theory exam: The final theory exam, which is the summative assessment that constitutes the balance 40% of the weightage for the theory exam. They consist of 50 MCQs and 10 MEQs and are to be completed in stipulated period of time. Once submitted, they cannot be reattempted for a better score.
