Accreditation & Training Positions


ACD accredits training positions in dermatology and in Mohs micrographic surgery.

Training positions are accredited in order to:

  1. Ensure that all trainees/ candidates are provided with a learning environment which will educate and train competent dermatologists, as defined by the ACD curriculum, and/or competent Mohs surgeons as defined by the Mohs surgery curriculum.
  2. Maintain a consistent level of education and training in every accredited post.
  3. Gather feedback from key stakeholders to continually improve all aspects of the training programs.

The National Accreditation Committee is responsible for accrediting all training positions and consists of a Fellow from each State, including a Mohs Micrographic Surgery Committee representative, and a member from the Trainee Representative committee.


All Training Positions are accredited in accordance with defined Standards and College regards these as important for the quality education and training of Trainees/Candidates.

The Accreditation Committee accredit College Training Positions according to a State-based five-yearly cycle.

The current timetable for the College’s State Training Structure Accreditation is as follows:


2017 New South Wales State Training Structure (includes Australian Capital Territory)
2018 Victorian State Training Structure (includes Tasmania)
2019 Western Australia State Training Structure
2020 South Australian State Training Structure (includes Northern Territory)
2021 Queensland State Training Structure

Unscheduled state training structure accreditation

Unscheduled state training structure accreditations may also be carried out for the following reasons:

  1. If the College is advised that there have been significant changes to the structure or function of any particular training position, an accreditation site visit or review may be conducted in advance of the usual cycle.
  2. If a complaint from a Fellow or trainee/candidate is received, this will generate a review, and/or a visit to that training position/s.
