Courses, Meetings/Events and Training

We are proud to be involved in a wide variety of training programmes, courses and clinical meetings focussing on our strengths of epidemiology and evidence based practice.


Evidence based update meeting: Each year an evidence based update meeting is organised by the UK DCTN and chaired by Professor Hywel Williams. The day is aimed mainly at dermatologists and specialist dermatology nurses, although anyone with an interest in the area is welcome. Registration is now open open for the 2018 meeting on Acne and Hidradenitis Suppurativa.


Better Evaluation of Evidence and Statistics (BEES) Course - This increasingly popular three-day course is aimed at dermatologists looking to improve both critical appraisal skills and those skills needed to participate in clinical research projects. It is organised and taught by members of the CEBD, along with colleagues from the East Midlands Research Design Service. 


Critical Appraisal of Clinical Trials in Dermatology - This free online course is an introduction to critical appraisal of clinical trials in dermatology. It is intended primarily for researchers and healthcare professionals working in dermatology. This unique course is interactive and takes about 45 minutes to to complete.


An introduction to systematic searching in PubMed - This free online course describes the basic steps of constructing a systematic search in PubMed to answer a focused clinical question. It is intended primarily for healthcare professionals working in dermatology, as it uses dermatology examples. The course is interactive and should take around 1 hour to complete.


CEBD Summer School: We run a one day Sumer School in June every year. The 2018 course will take place Friday 8th June. The topic for 2018 is Critically Appraised Topics (CATs) in Dermatology.

UK DCTN Fellowships - The UK DCTN runs a number of fellowship award schemes each year, (including: SpR Fellowships, Nurse Fellowships, SAS Fellowships and GP Fellowships).
