The Clinical Dermatology programme, offered by University of Hertfordshire, has been developed to prepare clinicians for their role as health care professionals working with people with skin conditions.


It provides inter-professional working opportunities for the study of key aspects of dermatology practice. There are a range of specialist modules covering key areas of dermatology practice including, management of skin lesions and skin cancers, and chronic skin conditions to enable clinicians to develop knowledge and skills relating to common dermatological conditions. These modules can be studied as stand alone modules or as part of the Masters programme.

Additionally, from time the time, the department of Postgraduate Medicine offers dermatology short courses. 

The programme has been developed to meet the needs of practitioners with a special interest in skin disease whilst benefiting from shared, inter-professional learning. This dermatology programme is unique in that it recruits both UK/EU and International doctors and allied health professionals to this specialist master’s degree and provides a range of taught postgraduate dermatology modules. 

The  Clinical Dermatology programme, offered by University of Hertfordshire, is aimed at practitioners wanting to undertake further specialist training and develop career aspirations in dermatology and skin integrity. Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin, hair, nails, and associated disorders. This postgraduate course offers a structured educational programme in dermatology but does not focus on cosmetic dermatology. Aesthetic practitioners with clinical experience in dermatology who want to learn more about skin disease are welcome. 

This programme has an emphasis on developing practical competencies; good diagnostic skills, appropriate and timely management of common skin conditions and allows flexibility to study related specialist content to broaden student’s clinical expertise which is invaluable in today’s competitive workplace.
