Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology
About the course
An emphasis on diagnostic and practical aspects.
This distance learning programme covers core aspects of dermatology over the course of one academic year, with particular emphasis on the diagnosis and management of skin disease from a primary care perspective.
There are two separate but linked programmes; The UK programme is for UK based, fully GMC registered General Practitioners that are able to attend at least 4 onsite clinical days. The Overseas programme course is for doctors outside the UK or for UK based doctors unable to attend the clinical days.
The course material across the 2 versions of the programme is identical and successful completion of either programme leads to the award of a Diploma in Clinical Dermatology from the University of London.
The weekly teaching sessions are given by experts in the field and comprise written and audiovisual material with a summative quiz.
