Course content

Allergy is an increasing global health problem, and there is an urgent need both UK and worldwide for training in clinical allergy for all levels of the medical profession who diagnose and manage patients with allergic conditions.

Our Allergy courses have been designed for students with a wide range of background skills who require a detailed understanding of allergic disease, such as hospital doctors, paediatricians, GPs, nurses, dieticians, nutritionists, scientists and health visitors.

These qualifications will be of great value to those holding, or wishing to apply for, specialist posts in secondary care in areas of medicine such as respiratory medicine, dermatology and paediatrics, where allergic mechanisms may be responsible for the underlying pathogenesis of disease entities.

Our courses are structured around a modular teaching week and supported by extensive interactive online learning resources, enabling students from around the world to take part.

The dynamic nature of the course will enable you to receive up-to-the-minute information on new research and clinical practice parameters, and has been recognised for its innovative teaching style.

This is supported by teaching from faculty staff made up of the wide pool of world renowned experts at Imperial and from around the UK.

The Allergy programmes will mainly be located at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington.

Information for international students

Face-to-face teaching is provided in one block of four or five days in each academic term to limit the need to travel to London.
