Welcome to the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology. This popular course has been extensively redesigned using innovative technology to facilitate first class training in dermatology at a postgraduate level.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology is organised by the Centre for Cell Biology and Cutaneous Research, in the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary, University of London and the Department of Dermatology, BartsHealth.

The programme is a one year, part-time, distance learning course. There are two separate but linked programmes;

- The UK course is aimed at UK-based, fully GMC registered General Practitioners (limited availability)

- The Overseas course is aimed at doctors based outside of the UK, doctors within the UK that do not hold GMC registration or GMC registered doctors that are unable to join us for the clinical days. This course is also open for UK based GMC registered doctors that apply too late to secure a place on the UK course.

Successful completion of either programme leads to award of a Diploma in Clinical Dermatology from the University of London.
