About Postgraduate Diploma in Renal Medicine (Online Delivery), PG Dip - at University of South Wales

In clinical practice, both in primary and secondary care, kidney disease is encountered frequently by the non-kidney specialist, especially as it is as a complication of common conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Healthcare professionals on the front line need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with potential nephrology patients confidently and effectively.

Delivered online with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, this renal medicine course will enable you to diagnose and treat patients with symptoms of kidney disease with confidence, without being a kidney specialist.

It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to prevent or reduce the progression of CKD and ensure timely referral to secondary care, help you to treat dialysis and transplant patients from a primary care perspective and consolidate your knowledge to ensure best patient care and service outcomes.

Entry requirements

To secure your place on the course, applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a relevant professional healthcare field, such as a medical or nursing degree. Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite clinical and professional knowledge.

English Language Requirements

Proficiency in the English Language is also essential to completing our courses. If English is NOT your first language, we ask for proof of competency during the application process. We are able to accept an IELTS overall score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 for each band) or an equivalent qualification.
