Course content

This MSc programme aims to promote critical knowledge, confidence and ability in the diagnosis and management of common dermatological conditions that are regularly presented in general practice. It will enable practitioners to consider and develop a range of clinical management skills for common dermatological disorders through applied theoretical and practical study. This programme believes in the importance of life-long learning and endeavours to provide the practitioner with an educational framework that promotes independent learning and is both professionally relevant and appropriate for applying theory to practice. It aims to develop competent, reflective and analytical practitioners, who can contribute effectively to practice delivery and to commissioning and who are responsive to evolutionary changes in the structure and provision of healthcare.

We feel that this is required for each of our courses as our students come here because of the facilities and the specialists that provide the courses so it is important that prospective students are able to see the full details of the school when they search for a course.
