Johns Hopkins University School of medicine in association with Hansa Medcell is providing postgraduate distance programs in Cardiology, rheumatology and diabetology. The curriculum is supposedly best suited for medical practitioners interested in acquiring specialist skills and for  orthopedics interested in  understanding rheumatology better. The programs have been developed by Johns Hopkins University in collaboration with Medical Education and Scientific Foundation, New York.

The course holds high importance for Indian doctors as increasing number of cardiovascular diseases such as rheumatoid and diabetes, are on the increase in all age groups. The course will also enable doctors to identify and answer primary questions in the prevention, treatment and mechanism of disease in the basic sciences and health care delivery.

The fee for the program is US$1800 for foreign students. However, the program is available for Rs 60,000 for South Indian doctors, along with educational grants on a limited basis. The course is available to anyone having a post graduate degree in medicine or a Bachelor's degree in medicine with a minimum of 3 years of clinical experience in the specialty.
