The MSc in Clinical Dermatology is a structured programme designed for doctors who wish to specialise in dermatology. The course gives firm grounding in the fundamentals of clinical and scientific dermatology. The course is suitable for overseas medical graduates in particular but is also appropriate as an additional course to contribute to any dermatology specialist training programme.
This is a full-time course covering a complete year commencing at the end of September. There are frequent lectures both from members of the dermatology department in Cardiff and from specialist speakers from other major British dermatology centres. There is regular clinical tuition and there are visits to other specialist dermatology departments in the United Kingdom.
Students pursuing the MSc course will be eligible for progression to Stage 2 of the course (dissertation component) following the successful completion of the Stage 1 modules. Stage 2 commences in June and consists of taught and dissertation elements, with the submission of the 20,000 word dissertation in September.
The majority of students are self-funded, though some obtain awards from the British Council, respective Governments, Commonwealth Universities Scholarships and employers.
Applicants must be qualified in medicine and have a minimum of 1 year's general medical experience.
