The Diabetes Teaching Center at UCSF: Over Thirty Years of Service and Support

Established in 1978, the Diabetes Teaching Center is one of the first programs of its kind in the nation. Our team educates individuals with diabetes on all aspects of self-care. We place special emphasis on helping newly diagnosed patients understand diabetes, and facilitate the necessary lifestyle changes to manage their care. For those living with diabetes, this program provides training in the latest advances in self-care and problem-solving skills.

The Diabetes Teaching Center's specialized workshops and classes include:

  • Insulin pump workshops
  • Oral agent classes – two day
  • Insulin workshops – three ad one-half days
  • Individual consultation 


Thousands of people around the world have completed in-person and online workshops at the Diabetes Teaching Center. We hope you will join us. Please see our schedule of classes for upcoming workshops as well as our useful resources for helping you manage your diabetes.
