Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The Charles Institute of Dermaotology is pleased to announce the launch of 2 new CPD course offerings from September 2021, Biology of Human Skin and Biology of Human Hair Growth, for  applicants who may not have a primary degree in biology.

These two CPD courses are split from the original formal Professional Certificate of Skin and Hair Follicle Science offering.

Those who complete the Continuing Professional Development courses will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course. Please note that there is no formal assessment or UCD award for either offering.

Both courses are suitable for a range of students (graduates and non-graduates) from biological or general life sciences backgrounds and they are also open to clinicians (incl. nurses) and other professionals working in industrial (Pharma/personal Care) or academic research environments.                                                                                                                          

The lectures will be delivered by Prof. Desmond Tobin, Full Professor of Dermatological Science and an active skin and hair follicle researcher (https://people.ucd.ie/desmond.tobin). There may be occasional lectures delivered by invited specialists.

CPCE01120 Biology of Human Skin (click here for more information and how to apply)

This part-time and wholly online webinar based Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course includes an interactive lecture schedule of 12 hours of direct teaching to provide a fundamental and comprehensive knowledge base in the biology of human skin. The lecture block will cover an introduction to the biology of the skin, and where relevant, will include variations with gender, age, and geographic ancestry. This then will be followed by a series of lectures specific to human skin (incl. epidermis, dermis, and adipose sub-cutis). While this course will not focus specifically on topics of overt clinical pathology of the skin, it will refer to common ‘physiological’ changes (e.g., dry/oily skin, blemishes etc.) that may be of interest to those in the personal care market.

 

CPCE01130 Biology of Human Hair Growth (click here for more information and how to apply)

This part-time and wholly online webinar based Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course includes an interactive lecture schedule of 13 hours of direct teaching to provide a fundamental and comprehensive knowledge base in human hair growth biology. The lecture block will cover an introduction to the biology of the skin and its appendages, and where relevant, will include variations with gender, age, and geographic ancestry. This then will be followed by a series of lectures specific to hair follicle biology (incl. hair growth cycle, hair fiber, hair pigmentation etc.) While this course will not focus specifically on topics of overt clinical pathology of the hair follicle, it will refer to common ‘physiological’ changes (e.g., male pattern baldness) that may be of interest to those in the personal care market.
