ABSTRACT

Background: Both prevalence and incidence of Diabetes Mellitus are rising. The number of people with diabetes went from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014 It is estimated that 552 million people will have diabetes by 2030, a prevalence of 10 %. In Saudi Arabia, there were 3.8 million individuals with diabetes in 2014 and this number is projected to increase to 2.5 million by 2030. It is very clearly that diabetes represents a major clinical and public health problem in Saudi Arabia. Objectives: To assess the level of awareness among medical student about complication of Diabetes Mellitus. Methods: A crosssectional study conducted at King Saud University Medical College A self-administered questionnaire was given to medical students containing questions about proven complication of diabetes. The questionnaire is to be given to all medical students from all years (first to fifth year). The sampling technique will be convenience sampling. Results: 82.9% of the students were appropriately knowledgeable about the complications of diabetes, 69.4% of pre-clinical chose the right answer in at least ten questions and 88.8% of clinical students chose the right answer in at least ten questions. Conclusion: Overall, medical students of King Saud University did well knowing about the complications of diabetes. Clinical year Students outperformed Preclinical years students as we can see from the results. There’s a need for further curriculum modifications as pre-clinical years students weren’t highly aware about DM complications.
