Columbia MS in Diabetes Education & Mgmt

  1. Hi All,

    I am so intrigued by this specialized program at Columbia, and am wondering if anyone here has any information about it, or if anyone here is actually enrolled in this program.

    The big roadblock for me is the tuition- over $1500 a CREDIT sounds very prohibitive. I was wondering if there are any grants or scholarships specific to this program, since it is targeted to fulfill such a specific need.

    Are you a CDE? Because if not- I'd work on that first.

    I agree that the tuition is totally insane- especially since the program is only open to licensed professionals who are eligible to become CDEs. I can't imagine that most individuals in these positions are able to take on that sort of debt. I know I sure can't.

    As for becoming a CDE, I am just beginning to prepare for the exam. Can you offer any advice?

    Thanks so much!!
