Developed and delivered by the British Society for Immunology, this interactive training programme provides essential immunology knowledge to demystify the science behind immunotherapy and explain the application of these therapies in the clinic. By equipping you with tangible information that you can take back to your clinical area, you can continue to advance patient care and outcomes in immune-related conditions.


Through problem-based learning delivered live online, this course will empower you to:

  • Understand how the science directly relates to clinical practice
  • Explain how immunotherapy drugs work in simple terms
  • Discuss the pros and cons of different treatment options, the chances of success and reasons for drug-switching
  • Better understand the safety profile of these drugs and why treatment resistance and immune-related toxicities can occur

Key features:

  • Online training – a one-day course for one specialty plus additional afternoon workshops if you’d like to explore more specialties
  • Practical, case-based learning
  • Digital workbook to accompany the course
  • Certificate of attendance
  • Guided by engaging, passionate experts in the field


You might work directly with patients and be keen to understand the science, or have limited contact with patients and would like to understand the clinical application of these therapies better – either way, this course is for you.
This course is designed for all HCPs and clinicians involved in the care of patients receiving immunotherapy, including doctors, nurses, hospital pharmacists, clinical scientists, physician associates and GPs.
Researchers and industry-based product development teams interested in how these drugs are utilised in clinical practice will also find great value in this training.
No prior immunology knowledge is needed for this course.
