Fellowship in Diabetes Mellitus provides you with comprehensive up-to-date knowledge in the management of Diabetes to confidently deal with routine problems in Diabetes in clinical practice. The course covers different aspects of the inpatient and outpatient care of diabetes and management of various diabetes complications.
Diabetes usually affects organs like Brain (stroke), Heart (heart attack), Leg (gangrene), Kidney (kidney failure), Eye (retinopathy) and Nerve Damage (neuropathy).
Nearly 44 lakh Indians in their most productive years — aged 20 to 79 years — aren’t aware that they are diabetic, a disease that exposes them to heart attack, stroke, amputations, nerve damage, blindness and kidney disease. 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. Against this scenario, IMA eVarsity offers a schematically designed and pedagogically-grounded course in Diabetes mellitus by incorporating features drawn from successful on-campus and distance education.
The One year Fellowship in Diabetes Mellitus aims at preparing you as a generalist doctor with comprehensive up-to-date knowledge in the management of Diabetes that allows you to confidently deal with routine problems in Diabetes in your clinical practice. During the course the candidates will be trained in different aspects of the inpatient and outpatient care of diabetes. They will also be exposed to the management of various diabetes complications through postings in the diabetic eye, heart and foot clinics and intensive care. At the end of the Course the candidate will be fully competent to deal with any type of diabetes patient as well as with diabetes complications of any degree of severity.

The course is affiliated to Martin Luther Christian University – MLCU, a premier university from Shillong, doing yeoman service in the field of education in the North-east sector. MLCU is a UGC approved university.
The primary objective of this course is to metamorphose general practitioners to family doctors who are adept not only at diagnosing but also in the management of Diabetes. While doing so, it imparts career enhancing skills empowering him to function as a Diabetologist, enabling him to render primary care in Diabetes, while at the same time helping him to become knowledgeable and conscious of the need to refer whenever needed.
Recognising the need of the hour of turning general practitioners to primary care physicians, who thrive on building relationship with the patients and family, rather than treat them as numbers, IMA eVarsity has crafted these courses for experienced practising doctors – doctors who could not take up post graduation for whatever reason, doctors who are so busy with their practice that they do not find time to attend continuous medical education. These courses are made available for the MCI-registered doctors.
Taking leaf from Winston Churchill’s philosophy of “always ready to learn although… not always like being taught”, IMA eVarsity is transforming medical education by garnering learning empowered by the interactive platform of digital technology.
