BEES Summer School


Summer School

On the previous BEES Courses, many participants expressed an interest in learning more about writing and publishing papers in peer review dermatology journals.  We only touch on the topic during the BEES Course, so in order to respond to your needs, we run a BEES Summer School, focusing on improving your skills at writing and publishing your paper.  

The one-day course is directed mainly at dermatology Specialist Registrars wishing to improve paper-writing skills and publication success.  

The course is held at the Centre of Evidence-Based Dermatology at the University of Nottingham, and the faculty includes :

Tanya Bleiker (Editor of British Journal of Dermatology)
Mike Doherty (former Editor of Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases)
Kim Thomas (Associate Professor of the Centre of Evidence-Based Dermatology)
Hywel Williams (Chair – British Epidermo-Epidemiology Society)

The Summer School is highly interactive and uses real examples from dermatology papers to illustrate points.  

Details of future Summer Schools will be advertised on the website.
