The Clinical Dermatology programme from University of Hertfordshire is aimed at practitioners wanting to undertake further specialist training and develop career aspirations in dermatology and skin integrity.

The programme aims to develop methods of inquiry and skills required to advance dermatology practice using an in-depth current and relevant evidence base.

At the end of the programme, you will feel confident in treating and managing patients with a range of commonly presenting skin disease.
