Course content

Allergy is an increasing global health problem. There is an urgent need both in the UK and worldwide for training in clinical allergy.

Our Allergy courses have been designed to suit all levels of healthcare professionals who deal with patients with allergic conditions, including doctors (GPs, Paediatricians, Specialists in Allergy, Dermatology, Respiratory medicine or ENT) as well as specialist nurses, dietitians, nutritionists and biomedical scientists.

The course enables students to develop advanced knowledge and practical skills to optimally diagnose and manage allergic diseases at all ages.

Teaching is delivered by world-renowned experts in the field and covers all aspects from the basic immune mechanisms underlying allergic diseases to cutting-edge research that may influence clinical practice.

Our courses are structured around a modular teaching week each term at St. Mary's Medical School Campus in Paddington, London, supported by extensive interactive online learning resources. This flexible schedule enables students from around the world to take part. It allows you to fit the course in with your professional commitments and to study in your own time as your personal situation permits.

This course is made up of three phases (Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc). You must apply to the Postgraduate Certificate in the first instance.
