Unique Qualifications Pathway

The Unique Qualifications (UQ) Pathway is available to health professionals who do not hold one of the qualifying registrations/licensures or advanced degree in social work that are included under the standard pathway, BUT who do hold advanced degrees in health care concentrations/majors.  Pre-approval is required.

Some examples of majors that could qualify under this pathway are nutrition, exercise physiology, and public health. However, the approval to take the Certification Examination for Diabetes Educators via the UQ Pathway is not based on the degree alone. All requirements must be met in order to pursue certification via the UQ Pathway. Please be sure to review the qualifications carefully prior to applying.
