Allergy is an increasing global health problem, and both UK and worldwide there is an urgent requirement for training in clinical allergy for all levels of the medical profession who diagnose and manage patients with allergic conditions.
The Imperial College Postgraduate courses in Allergy offer a modular teaching week structure and extensive interactive online learning resources, enabling students from around the World to participate. The course faculty is derived from the wide pool of world renowned experts at Imperial College and from around the UK. The dynamic nature of the course structure enables students to receive up to the minute information on new research and clinical practice parameters and has been recognised for its innovative teaching style.
The Allergy programmes will mainly be located at St. Mary’s Hospital Paddington but students also spend time in allergy clinics in other Central London hospitals affiliated with Imperial College with strong allergy services and world renowned allergy research programmes. In particular this includes clinics at The Royal Brompton Hospital, Chelsea.
Graduates from the Postgraduate Certificate in Allergy will have acquired the knowledge base and practical skills to diagnose and manage patients with allergic diseases, enabling them to participate in allergy clinics and to provide allergy services in general practice. Those students progressing to the Masters course will have in addition acquired an in-depth knowledge of specific allergic conditions, and be able to manage research into allergic conditions, enabling them to provide clinical allergy services at a more advanced level. The qualifications will be of great value to those wishing to apply for specialist posts in secondary care in areas of medicine such as respiratory medicine, dermatology and paediatrics, where allergic mechanisms may be responsible for the underlying pathogenesis of disease entities.
