In addition to substantial undergraduate teaching, and a large number of PhD students, the CCR has been developing a series of distance learning, now Web CT based e-learning, educational courses. A postgraduate diploma in Clinical Dermatology (Director Vicky Jolliffe) has been in place for over 5 years and provides a year long, 30 module course in the basics of clinical dermatology for general practitioners wishing to develop a special interest (GPSIs). This has become available to overseas students from May 2006 (Director Ginny Hubbard). A postgraduate diploma is aesthetic surgery has been approved. There is also significant infrastructure to deliver educational programmes (3 educational administrators), which will help in development and delivery of short courses and a modular based MSc in burn studies/Plastic surgery, over the period of the grant.
