The success of the CCEBDM program has been truly remarkable. It has quickly established itself as the benchmark for diabetes educational programs for practicing physicians. The course content was initially developed and subsequently, incrementally modified and improved by experts from across India, ultimately resulting in a comprehensive body of information that has been delivered to thousands of physicians. The sense of involvement and ownership on the part of all those involved in delivering the program is one of the key reasons its success. The excellent organization by the PHFI and the leadership role played by Dr Mohan's Academy have all combined to make this a course that has now achieved global recognition. I am delighted to be a part of this unique educational endeavour.

The new modules for this certificate course are a complete change and delivers update knowledge to the participants. I feel some case illustrations can be made to make it more practical and applicable in clinical practice. I also suggest the exit exam pattern should be re-defined to make this course worthy.
