Career opportunities

Diabetes educators may work within a tertiary health centre, or within primary health. They can become self-employed and work in private practice, or they can work alongside other allied health providers such as dietitians, podiatrists, physiotherapists, and psychologists. Having credentialed diabetes educators working in primary health and particularly rural and remote regions is one of the current goals of the Australian Diabetes Educators Association (ADEA).
