Allergy is an increasing global health problem. There is an urgent need both in the UK and worldwide for training in clinical allergy.
Our Allergy courses have been designed to suit all levels of healthcare professionals who deal with patients with allergic conditions, including doctors (GPs, Paediatricians, Specialists in Allergy, Dermatology, Respiratory medicine or ENT) as well as specialist nurses, dietitians, nutritionists and biomedical scientists.
The course enables students to develop advanced knowledge and practical skills to optimally diagnose and manage allergic diseases at all ages.
Teaching is delivered by world-renowned experts in the field and covers all aspects from the basic immune mechanisms underlying allergic diseases to cutting-edge research that may influence clinical practice.
Our courses are structured around a modular teaching week each term at St. Mary's Medical School Campus in Paddington, London, supported by extensive interactive online learning resources. This flexible schedule enables students from around the world to take part. It allows you to fit the course in with your professional commitments and to study in your own time as your personal situation permits.
This course is made up of three phases (Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc).
You must apply to the Postgraduate Certificate in the first instance. Read more about how this works under 'Choosing your course' in the how to apply section on our website.
Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert)
You complete three modules by attending a five-day (Monday-Friday) teaching block for each module in one academic year (usually in October, January and April). You also complete extensive additional studies through online learning resources.
Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip)
After completing the PG Cert modules in year 1, you attend six core modules in Year 2. Each module lasts two days (these are organised so that two modules run in the same week, to help minimise travel to London). These modules are usually run in November, February and June. You submit an assignment on each module.
Master's degree (MSc)
In addition to completing the PgCert and PGDip modules, you will complete a research project and write up a dissertation. You can submit this either in Year 2, or in Year 3 for those wishing to spread the academic workload.
The PG Cert and PG Dip modules can also be completed as standalone short courses.
These qualifications will be of great value to those healthcare professionals holding or wishing to apply for specialist posts in secondary and tertiary care in areas of medicine such as allergy, paediatrics, respiratory medicine, dermatology and gastroenterology.
It will also be very valuable for GPs, specialist nurses, nutritionists and dietitians wishing to further develop their expertise and careers in allergy.
