What is a Dermatologist?

A dermatologist has a medical degree and four years of specialist training. The Australasian College of Dermatologists is the only government accredited provider of specialist training. Dermatologists specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin diseases and cancers.

Dermatologists are initially trained as doctors, undertaking six of more years of university study to gain their medical degree. This is followed by several years of full-time training and practice as a junior hospital doctor in an accredited teaching hospital. Only then can application be made to enter the four-year national dermatology training program. Regular assessments of trainees are conducted by the Australasian College of Dermatologists (ACD) to ensure that high standards of specialists are produced.

Dr Hope Dinh, Dr Georgina Lyons and Dr Sarah Shen completed their full medical training in Melbourne (from medical school and right through to completion of specialist Dermatology training). All  our dermatologists are approachable, experienced and professional. Our dermatologists also hold hospital appointments in major Melbourne teaching hospitals.
