Clinical and Health Sciences with Allergy PGCert


Course Description

Course overview

This online course enables you to match your educational needs with your professional practice. You will gain the knowledge and skills needed for optimal clinical evaluation of the allergic patient. You will also learn how to manage common allergic conditions, such as eczema, food allergy, asthma and drug allergy.

This course has been developed for clinicians, nurses and other allied health professionals who have a particular interest in clinical allergy. The focus is clinical, drawing on the latest research. The course is suitable for those working in primary or secondary care settings with adults or children. If you commonly see patients with allergic conditions and want to develop your clinical skills in this area, then this course is for you.

You will study our compulsory allergy module alongside a range of optional modules. The allergy module is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and covers: basic immunology for clinical allergy practice; clinical evaluation of the allergic patient, including diagnostic options and management approaches; anaphylaxis; asthma; allergic skin disease, including eczema, urticaria and angioedema; drug allergy; food allergy (both lgE mediated disease and non IgE mediated disease); 'hot topics' in allergy.

This innovative course is aimed at those who already have a primary qualification (eg MBBS, BDS, BSc) and are working in a health or life sciences field. It has been developed to provide a flexible approach, making it sustainable and compatible with modern career pathways, whilst addressing the needs of a modern health service.
