Our training programmes...


There are a number of clinical fellowships suitable for trainee dermatologists nearing or on completion of their specialist dermatology training (applicants must be GMC registered or eligible for GMC registration).

MSc Clinical Dermatology

The clinical dermatology MSc is an advanced study programme aimed at international medical graduates wishing to specialise in the field of dermatology.


The St John’s DermAcademy coordinates an educational initiative, called an observership (or Visiting Professional Programme (VPP)) for international doctors, researchers, and other healthcare professionals who wish to observe specific areas of clinical care in our department. These customized educational programs facilitate knowledge sharing and expertise in clinical care, as well as quality and innovation in healthcare.

These range from highly skilled GPs with an extended role (GPwER) in dermatology in community dermatology services, to nurses, trainees and consultant dermatologists delivering care in secondary and tertiary referral centres. 

View our past events

We run multiple events throughout the year for various healthcare professionals. Our events and courses take various formats from large group lecture programmes to small hands-on workshops.

Instead of generic courses aimed at increasingly diverse groups of health professionals, we provide events that are specific to the needs of different healthcare professional groups. Our St John’s DermAcademy faculty includes dermatology consultants and trainees, nurse specialists, allergists, GP leads and international advisors to allow us to tailor our courses based on individual audience needs. 

Healthcare professionals can attend our events to keep up to date about best clinical practice in dermatology and get clinical tips and advice from key speakers. Delegates have also found our events to be a great networking platform to meet new colleagues and our St John’s DermAcademy faculty.
