ACD Approved Mohs Micrographic Surgeons

ACD Approved Mohs Micrographic Surgeons

The Australasian College of Dermatologists maintains a list of doctors who have reached a defined standard of training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and who take part in ongoing professional development. This ensures quality and safety for patients.

To become a Mohs surgeon in Australia, a trained specialist Dermatologist must undertake a minimum of 1-2 years approved Mohs surgery training or equivalent Mohs Fellowship program and meet specific requirements.

The doctors on the ACD Approved Mohs Micrographic Surgeons register are both Fellows of the Australasian College of Dermatologists (FACD) and accredited Mohs surgeons. They adhere to the following benchmarks of quality by:

  • Ensuring that 90% of Mohs cases are carried out in difficult sites including the head and neck, lower leg, hands, digits or anogenital area
  • Maintaining practical skills by undertaking a minimum number of 50+ Mohs cases per year totalling not less than 150 over a 3-year period
  • The ratio of Medicare Benefits Schedule (MPS) Mohs item numbers 3100 + 31001 to 31002 is 19:1. This is derived from Medicare statistics relating to 114,000 Mohs procedures carried out over 21 years to 2014. This benchmark provides an outline of Mohs practice in Australia. 31002 is a marker of higher resource use. The benchmark varies regionally for clinically acceptable reasons, in the opinion of the Mohs committee, from 8:1 to 66:1.
  • Participating in an annual quality assurance program in diagnostic dermatopathology run by the Royal Australasian College of Pathology Quality Assurance Program.
  • Participating in the ACD Mohs group which sets professional standards for the practice of Mohs surgery in Australia under the auspices of the Australian Medical Council.
