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.
