Students enrolled at universities around the globe often take courses.  An academic course lasts one full term, and it usually focuses on a specific subject. The course helps students gain the credits necessary for graduation and prepare for future work opportunities.

What is a course in health? This class provides students with knowledge about the field of health. There are a variety of health courses available. Some focus on public health while others are more scientific in nature.

The cost of a course varies with each school. There are universities around the country that offer classes on health, and they each have their own fees for tuition.  If you want more details about the specific costs, it is best to contact the university.

Once students complete this course, they usually continue their education in order to qualify for a degree. With the right degree, there are often jobs available in the healthcare field.  Some people work as nurses while others find jobs in administration.

Enhance your understanding of diabetic foot care with this online short course from King’s College London. Learn from world-leading academics and practising clinicians who set the standards in this field. King’s College Hospital was the first in the world to introduce a multidisciplinary approach to footcare – a standard adopted by the WHO and the International Diabetes Federation in the St Vincent Declaration in 1989. Worldwide, every 20 seconds a lower limb is lost due to diabetes. The rate of diabetes is rising. Many people across the globe are living with this life-changing condition and its long-term complications, including diabetic foot disease. Foot complications have become a serious burden for people with diabetes and if not timely managed, they can lead to lower limb loss. Yet, there’s a simple solution, and it stems from awareness and knowledge. With appropriate care and timely management, more than 80% of lower limb amputations are avoidable. During this short course, students will develop knowledge about the screening and management of diabetic foot disease – vital knowledge for any healthcare professional aiming to stop this upward trend. This course is taught 100% online giving students the flexibility to study alongside other work and life commitments. This short course offers two routes, an 8-week assessed credit-bearing version (15 credits) and a 6-week unassessed version. -
