Who is this Diploma for?

This Diploma is designed for doctors seeing patients with skin disease on a regular basis who wish to up-skill in Specialist Dermatology

Please note: This is NOT a basic GP Diploma in Dermatology.

There is an assumed level of basic knowledge and it is therefore not suitable for GPs without previous dermatology experience.
