Dermatology comprises 25% of a General Practitioner’s workload. The majority of skin conditions should be treated in a general practice setting.
The webinar-based, interactive lecture schedule and case-based assessment series will compromise approx. 25 hours of teaching covering a comprehensive knowledge base of Clinical Dermatology. The four lectures blocks will cover an Introduction to Dermatology, Molecular Biology of the Skin and Dermatological Terminology, Cutaneous Malignancy, Infectious Dermatoses, Inflammatory Dermatoses, Cutaneous manifestations of Systemic Disease, Alopecias and Pediatric Dermatology.
Participants will develop a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of dermatological diseases and enhance their knowledge of the scientific basis of clinical dermatology. They will also develop an understanding of the impact of dermatological conditions, referral pathways, imaging and management.
Lectures will be delivered by Specialist Registered Consultant Dermatologists and occasional biology-focused lectures also by Prof. DJ Tobin, providing an expert-led learning experience. Webinars will be interactive and will facilitate a question and answer section to allow practicing GPs and other physicians to further delve into the clinical aspects of disease.
