Program Overview

The College of Health Sciences and Professions sponsors the Undergraduate Diabetes Certificate. This program educates and prepares students to better understand the multifaceted and complex condition of diabetes. The program offers a unique opportunity for students to obtain interdisciplinary education and training opportunities as well as service learning, clinical and/or research opportunities guided by experts in diabetes. The need for this diabetes program is underscored by the high prevalence of this condition locally and nationwide, as well as by the vibrant diabetes-related infrastructure currently available at Ohio University.

Students interested in pursuing the diabetes certificate (CTDIAB) can obtain an application form from their college’s student services office. After completing the application and obtaining the certificate coordinator’s signature, they should return the form to their college’s student services office. Each academic period on the student’s DARS (Degree Audit Reporting System) Report, students can track their progress in the certificate program. Students must receive a C or better in both core and elective courses in order to receive the certificate.
