To celebrate our 5th Birthday we look back at our journeyBecome a partner
Dr Stephen Davies commissions and launches his own learning management system to host specifically created online medical education modules. The first modules cover subjects such as Weight Management, accredited by the College of Pharmacy Practice against the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's CPD competency framework.
Learna Ltd is founded by Dr Stephen Davies, Consultant Endocrinologist at the University Hospital Wales. The vision of the organisation was to promote lifelong learning and personal development.
We publically launch the newly validated Diabetes Diploma with the University of Glamorgan (now University of South Wales). Work starts on recruiting students, finalising the specific content of the course and employing international experts as tutors.
After receiving a number of requests to help SpR’s revise for the high stakes SCE exams, Dr Davies develops our first SCE resource in Endocrinology and Diabetes. We now have 3 full SCE resources including Palliative Medicine, Rheumatology and a mini resource in Oncology.
Our first intake of students start on the postgraduate diploma course in Diabetes. We are very proud of these first 53 students, some of whom go on to become tutors on the course.
After completing our first intake of the postgraduate diploma in Diabetes, we launch the 1 year MSc in Diabetes.
Whilst working with the University of South Wales we establish the need for a Diploma in Endocrinology. Due to high demand we launch, in the middle of the academic year; March 2012. We are still one of the few Postgraduate diploma courses to have 2 intakes a year.
We develop a new “all singing and dancing” learning management system and combine CPD PRN and Specialty Exam onto the platform. The new features of the website focus on “ease of use” for customers, making it simple for our healthcare professionals to learn online.
Continuing to develop the range of courses, we launch our Sports and Exercise Medicine diploma in March 2014, bringing an innovative way of education to this very practical subject area.
Our MSc in Diabetes gets recognised by the International Diabetes Federation.
