Course content

The Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology is organised by the Centre for Cutaneous Research (CCR), in the Blizard Institute, and the Department of Dermatology, Barts and The London NHS Trust (BLT).

This distance learning programme covers core aspects of dermatology over a one-year period, with particular emphasis on the diagnosis and management of skin disease from a primary care perspective. There are two separate but linked programmes; one for UK-based General Practitioners, and one for doctors outside the UK. Successful completion of either programme leads to 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 formative quiz. This course is quotable in Hong Kong.
