Course Description

The “Certificate in Internal Medicine” is designed by eminent faculty in the field of internal medicine for MBBS graduates and practitioners who are interested in providing better healthcare support to adult and geriatric patients.

Internal Medicine specialists are healthcare professionals who are specialized in preventing, diagnosing, and treating chronic and complex illnesses of patients along with supporting ongoing healthcare needs. In this era of specialization, patients are forced to visit multiple specialists for proper medical treatment. At times, such patients fail to obtain optimal treatment, eventually leading to a deterioration of their overall health. An internal medicine specialist can treat diseases comprehensively due to their knowledge of the pathologies of multiple systems.

The “Certificate in Internal Medicine” allows you to attend to your patients while mastering your scientific knowledge and expertise in diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients across the spectrum from health to complex illness. This course is a self-paced training program consisting of video lessons, case-based presentations, and assessments. 

This course delivers eight modules that culminated in 30 hours of learning content, the course covers core competencies such as:

  • The rationale for drug prescription, improving patient safety and drug efficacy
  • Management of patients with fluid, electrolyte, or acid-base perturbation
  • Case presentation on  infectious diseases and allergic conditions
  • Clinical representation of ear, nose, throat, and ophthalmological disorders

Learning complex medical concepts in the traditional didactic textbook and lecture format can be alienating for students. It prevents the opportunity to apply this knowledge clinically.

Certificate in Internal Medicine incorporates a Case-Based Learning Approach within the Medvarsity Learning Framework to address this gap in medical education. With this unique methodology, students consume relevant medical content while learning concepts through interactive case studies spread throughout the course. Thus, students are provided with relevant specialty-specific cases and a clear structure for precise diagnosis and customized treatment plans on a case-to-case basis.

Additionally, we’ve partnered with McGraw Hill to ensure that the students are exposed to relevant and credible content with the latest advances in the course specialty through a variety of case studies, books, videos, and other learning materials. This is the future of online education, especially for healthcare professionals.

We at Medvarsity help every physician with the ability to fast-track their career and enable them to better serve the communities in which they practice. Join us and let us impact healthcare through education.
