The aim of the master is to offer to colleagues, pediatricians and dermatologists interested in implementing their knowledge in pediatric dermatology, a qualified theoretical and practical training and an opportunity to continuous exchange views with European pediatric dermatologists from France, Italy and Spain.

Pediatric dermatology is now in several countries a Specialty due to its specificity and difference as compared to adult dermatology. Unfortunately, academic courses in Pediatrics and Dermatology do not dedicate enough time to this field, especially to the clinical practice. Cutaneous manifestations represent a major reason for consultation in the pediatrics clinics. Furthermore, many children are being referred to adult dermatologists.

The master's faculty is composed of national and international experts in pediatric dermatology, therefore, part of the courses will be held in English.
The participants are expected to become skilled, autonomous and capable to guarantee a qualified approach to affected children through an early diagnosis and adequate therapy.
At the end of the master, the participants will be granted with a certificate that will allow them to work in Pediatric Dermatology Units.


Registration fee is € 3.500 FOR a two year course. 50% of the fee must be paid at the time of registration and the remaining 50% within the deadline specified in the call. 
In case the number of candidates exceeds the number of available positions, candidates will be selected based on their academic qualifications and/or distance interview.
