What our Alumni say

Dr Caroline Cowley Profile Image

I would recommend this programme for any busy doctor/nurse as it is easily accessible from home. Living in a rural area, I have always been constrained in terms of attending “in person days” for diplomas. The time off work/distance factor was always a huge issue for me. I was delighted that this diploma was solely online and the tutors were recognised well respected experts in their field.

Jacinta Flanagan

As a midwife with no nursing/medical background I was very apprehensive undertaking this course. I was genuinely concerned I would not understand the level it was pitched at !! There was absolutely no need for me to worry about any aspect of the course as it was taught generically for all levels. I have absolutely no regrets about doing this course as it established a platform for me to run a clinic in my GP practice dedicated to womens health. I cannot thank iheed and the RCPI enough.
