Genital Dermatology PLUS Course 2020 - CANCELLED

26th June 2020


Royal College of Nursing, 20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G 0RN

COVID19 Update:

In light of the increasing rates of COVID19 the course organisers have decided not to press ahead with the BASHH Genital Dermatology PLUS Course due to take place on 26 June at the Royal College of Nursing. This decision has not been taken lightly. It seems inevitable that diagnoses will climb and it is possible further travel and group meeting restrictions may come into force, as well as acknowledging some Trusts are developing local restrictions on study leave and meetings for their staff. Please cancel any travel arrangements you may have made.

The next edition of the PLUS course will be in June 2021.

Registered delegates are entitled to a full refund of registration, but please bear with the BASHH Admin team and course organisers at this time. Rest assured all emails will be answered as promptly as possible.


This popular course is organised by the BASHH Genital Dermatology Special Interest Group. It covers topics that were not included in the BASHH Genital Dermatology Primary Course (held in October each year). It is intended to extend knowledge and skills of those who have attended the Genital Dermatology Primary Course. However, anyone who finds the topics interesting and feels it will be useful to them clinically should attend. The number of places on this course is limited. Hence, please apply as soon as registration goes live.


Consultants, specialty registrars, SAS doctors and clinical nurse specialists in Genitourinary Medicine, Sexual & Reproductive Health, Gynaecology, and General Practice. Doctors and nurses training in Dermatology may also find this course interesting and useful.


To equip participants with the more advanced knowledge and skills for the effective management of genital skin conditions.
