Skin Cancer Medicine – Epidemiology
If you regularly encounter skin cancer patients in your practice, you might be interested to watch a short video with Dr Hamilton Ayres, an experienced doctor in skin cancer medicine. The video is the first part of a webinar he hosted for the UQ Skin Cancer Medicine alumni and will give you valuable and simple tips on how to approach your patients and the steps to take when you spot a suspicious lesion.
The program includes theory and surgical practical sessions on:
- Skin anatomy and histology
- Diagnosis with dermoscopy
- Benign and malignant skin lesions
- Melanoma management
- Topical treatment options
- punch and shave biopsies
- Elliptical excisions and suturing
- Workflow and medicare billing
Our team of industry leaders and experienced skin cancer doctors will guide you in your learning and skills practice throughout the weekend and beyond. Upon completion of the course, you will receive unlimited access to additional online learning resources and alumni webinars with course revisions, case discussions and Q&A with the instructors.
Skin cancer is the most common dermatological condition seen in Australian general practice – and it is not overly complex to manage if you have the right skill set. This certificate course has been specifically designed for time-poor general practitioners wishing to acquire the knowledge required to safely and confidently diagnose and treat commonly encountered skin lesions.
The course is delivered both face-to-face and online. The two-day face-to-face course combines interactive lectures, case discussions and surgical practical sessions on pork parts. The online course offers a flexible learning experience with video lectures and online case discussions with the presenters. This course is the first part of the three-part Professional Diploma of Skin Cancer Medicine.
