COVID19 UPDATE The mode of delivery for this programme (2020/1 entry) has been altered due to the COVID19 pandemic. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our students and staff, we have taken the decision that this programme will be online until at least until January 2021. During this time, we will endeavour to provide clinical teaching via expert patients/actors across online interactive sessions. We are hoping that the ‘face to face’ element of this programme will begin next year in 2021. If you have any questions at all, please contact the Postgraduate Medical Admissions Office at PGTMedAdmissions@cardiff.ac.uk.
The MSc in Clinical Dermatology is designed specifically for doctors with a special interest in dermatology after gaining at least one year of general medical experience.
It aims to give a firm grounding in the fundamentals of clinical and scientific dermatology, with priority given to clinical instruction but also an emphasis on the scientific content of dermatology.
It is particularly suitable for overseas medical graduates, but is also appropriate as an additional course to contribute to any dermatology specialist training programme.
Teaching is delivered face-to-face at the Welsh Institute of Dermatology at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
