B.Sc. Diabetes Sciences is an Undergraduate Program offered by Amrita Center for Allied Health Sciences.
As the number of people with diabetes increases, so does the need for diabetes-aware skilled healthcare providers.
The gap between the available health resources and our healthcare requirements is set to widen: as ongoing large-scale rural-urban migration and industrialization continue to drive the current epidemic of obesity and overweight, diabetes has become one of the major obstacles to good health and well-being worldwide.

Diabetic educators will be able to counsel patients about diet, initiate insulin therapy, provide psychological support etc; on an individual basis and also conduct group education sessions on Diabetes to patients and their relatives. They will also learn basics of Medical nutrition therapy, basic podiatric care and essential statistics which would enable them to give dietary advice, podiatric care and conduct clinical audits and data entry.
