About the Dermatology programme

e-dermatology is an online learning resource which focuses on the diagnosis and management of common dermatological disorders. Initially designed for trainees, it is now also available, free of charge, to all clinicians working in the NHS and all members of the British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG) in the UK.

It has been developed by the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) in partnership with HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH).

Learning is based on the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board curriculum for specialist training in dermatology (www.jrcptb.org.uk). Interactive and engaging learning sessions covering all areas of the approved curriculum are provided.

More information

e-dermatology is intended to complement existing teaching initiatives, rather than replace them, and is available free of charge to trainees in dermatology higher specialist training.

The e-learning sessions are around 20 minutes in length, to fit in with busy work-study lives.

The materials for e-dermatology have been designed to be used on any internet enabled device either at home, in the workplace or on the move.

Some of the exciting features of these e-learning materials include the use of high resolution images, videos clips and animated interactions, to enrich the learning experience and increase visual accessibility.

Sample sessions


e-dermatology offers clinical scenario and knowledge based sessions.

Clinical scenarios allow the learner to follow cases from initial presentation to diagnosis and management.

Learners can work through any sessions relevant to their specific training needs, in any order they choose.
