Obesity and Weight Management Postgraduate Diploma and MSc

Course Provider: University of South Wales (in partnership with Learna)

Obesity is a growing epidemic worldwide. However, fewer than 1% of UK health professionals have received any specialised obesity training (Source: The College of Contemporary Health and Candesic). Our team of course authors and tutors are recognised experts and opinion leaders in their specialty areas. Our MSc/ PgDip in Obesity and Weight Management will focus on the rapidly growing pandemic, expand your knowledge and enable you to effectively treat patients.

The courses have been recently re-validated and received a commendation for the comprehensive mapping of the course learning outcomes against the OMEC competencies, future-proofing of the course in preparation for accreditation in future years.

The Obesity and Weight Management courses are designed for health professionals who are interested in a leadership role within weight and obesity management including GP’s, doctors, nurses, physicians, surgeons, physiotherapists, dieticians, psychologists and counsellors running clinics.

Both our Postgraduate Diploma and Masters course in Obesity & Weight Management can be completed online and are available 24/7, giving you the flexibility to learn at a time that suits your busy schedule.
