The St John’s Diploma in Specialist Dermatology

Welcome to the The St John’s Diploma in Specialist Dermatology, the world’s first and only part-time fully online distance learning qualification in specialist dermatology (secondary and tertiary care level).

The St John’s Diploma

About Us

This qualification is run by the St John’s Institute of Dermatology, at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London; a global leader in clinical, academic, and educational Dermatology. The Institute houses over 50 consultant dermatologists, each with their own unique areas of expertise.


Each year, we experience a huge demand from UK & international doctors, undergraduate students, and Masters students to attend our department to gain experience in specialist dermatology which we unfortunately cannot always accommodate. This led us to develop the St John’s Diploma.
