As of mid-February 2021 we are almost fully booked even though we have doubled the usual number of places. We have opened a waiting list for next year's course and for overseas applicants we are considering an international course later this year.

Dermatology courses for professionals

Annual Paediatric Dermatology Course for Dermatologists

British Association of Dermatologists logo This course is now a co-badged British Association of Dermatologists Educational Event.

This popular course, run by Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust, is designed for dermatologists (particularly trainees) and also consultants wanting to update their knowledge and skills.

Our teachers are selected from local paediatricians and dermatologists with special expertise in paediatric dermatology. The aim is to teach paediatric dermatology, not paediatrics, and the principles of child health necessary for the safe practice of dermatology in children.

This course is open to dermatologists only, but a sister course for paediatricians is held at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital (see below).
