Module overview

During this module, you will explore all aspects of allergic skin disease in depth. The module teaches about the immunological basis for skin diseases which can have an allergic component including eczema (atopic dermatitis), allergic contact dermatitis, photoallergic dermatitis, urticaria, angioedema, and systemic allergies affecting the skin. The sessions will include detail on pathogenesis, diagnosis, investigations and management. In addition, the module covers how to clinically distinguish allergic skin disease from other similar differential diagnoses. This module comprehensively covers both paediatric and adult disease.

Our online module is delivered using a blend of synchronous live teaching sessions and asynchronous recordings. Attending the live sessions is strongly encouraged as it allows you to engage with our expert teachers and your fellow students and benefit from rich discussions. Our recorded sessions enable you to personalise your experience and learn at your own pace. Engaging with the blend of live sessions and recordings within each teaching week allows you to synthesise your learning as you go to get the most from this module.

The module will take place during the following weeks (exact timetable to be confirmed):

  • Teaching & guided learning: 21/11-12/12/22
  • Self-directed learning: 13/12/22-18/01/23
