Positive feedback for Dermoscopy CPD course

1 September 2019


We are delighted to share feedback from delegates who have taken part in our Introduction to Dermoscopy online CPD training course.

Dermoscopy is a non-invasive, widely used diagnostic tool that aids the diagnosis of skin lesions and is proven to increase the accuracy of melanoma diagnosis. This 12-week online course is designed specifically for doctors who are involved in the care of dermatology patients with skin lesions, and who are interested in the management of benign and malignant skin lesions, or who wish to learn about dermoscopy to improve their skill in the diagnosis of melanoma.

This course runs twice a year and is well-regarded and popular with medical professionals from around the world. Here are a selection of our delegates' comments:

This was a brilliant course taught by world leading experts and has massively increased my confidence in dealing with skin lesions. It has formed an integral part of my portfolio in working as a GPSI in dermatology and skin cancer.

Dr James Cuthbertson, England March 2018
Introduction to Dermoscopy is not a course about dermatology only. With well-written learning material, the course connects me with specialists and other colleagues worldwide. By using a web-based platform, the course creates a flexible learning method even during busy practice. Students can get involved in discussions by using computers or smartphones. Tutors are willing to respond in a timely manner, and their feedbacks are constructive. In the live discussion forum, students can communicate with experts directly. As a result, the students can learn when and how to apply dermoscopy confidently. Now I am using dermoscopy in every clinical session.
Dr Tong Man-Chiu, Hong Kong September 2018
I am Usman Rafiq, a practicing dermatoscopist from Pakistan. The dermoscopy course from Cardiff has not only boosted my confidence but it has sky rocketed my clinical dermatology practice, people are getting a new way of diagnosis and I have saved many undue biopsies. It is highly recommended for every clinical dermatologist.
Dr Usman Rafiq, Pakistan March 2019
The Cardiff University Dermoscopy course has revolutionised my GP practice. I can now confidently confirm that lesions are benign and instantly recognise the feature of suspicious skin lesions. These skills have improved patient care and avoided practice unnecessary referrals. The course is intensive, the materials are user friendly and the online cases helped my confidence to grow and consolidate my skills. All GPs should consider this course which comes highly recommended.
Dr Julie Keely, Wales September 2017
I am working as an associate specialist in dermatology in Lancaster. This is one of the best dermoscopy courses I have attended. It is well structured and easy to understand, and the lectures were excellent. I highly recommend it.
Dr Fareeha Faisal, England September 2018
This dermoscopy course has been invaluable and fulfilled all my learning expectations. After this course, I can confidently use a dermoscope to recognise different skin lesions and know how to manage them. The online course set-up is well organized and provided a very effective learning forum. I highly recommend this course to the physician who is looking to learn about dermoscopy.
Dr. Abraham Yam Chun Yin, Hong Kong September 2017
This course has really improved my management of skin lesions as a GPwER Dermatology who works in Dermatology outpatients in a Fast Track clinic for 2WW referrals. Dermoscopy adds an extra diagnostic accuracy in my practice. I highly recommend it.
Dr Kwasi Appiah (GPwER Dermatology, Hertfordshire & Mid Essex) September 2018
