Practical Workshops

The Practical Dermoscopy module has a face-to-face, full day workshop. This day is run by leading Australian Dermatologists and will give students an opportunity to explore the use of dermoscopy and how to conduct a full skin check using diagnostic algorithms. In addition, students will have the opportunity to practice various types of skin biopsy and suturing techniques. 

We have every intention of holding our face-to-face workshops however will be subject to whatever COVID rules are in place at that time.  Given the unpredictable nature of interstate travel in Australia please ensure that any travel/accommodation bookings you make are fully flexible and refundable.  It is our preference that students attend workshops face-to-face however we have developed an online version.  If you have extenuating circumstances surrounding travel please contact us to discuss this alternative option.

Clinical Case Studies

In all our certificates participants have the opportunity to respond to authentic clinic case studies and challenge yourself to provide a diagnosis and first-step management plan on the clinical information and dermoscopic images.


Attend or watch online webinars and participate in open discussion on diagnosis and management direct with our expert Dermatologists.
