Skin cancers are the most common cancer managed by general practitioners, with more than 800,000 patient encounters each year.
This program is designed to provide comprehensive training in the diagnosis and management of skin cancer. On completion, doctors will be able to effectively diagnose and manage the large majority of patients with skin cancer and associated conditions and also know when to refer a patient for more advanced treatment or further opinion.
There is a shortage of health practitioners with expert knowledge of skin cancer. With skin cancer being one of the most common forms of cancer, and with incidence increasing, the need for skilled diagnosis and treatment is growing.
For those interested in pursuing fellowship, this program helps prepare the theoretical aspects of skin cancer practice.
