ADVANCED CERTIFICATE OF GENERAL DERMATOLOGY

  • : Sydney NSW 2000

8

COURSE OVERVIEW

GPs are confronted with common skin, nail and hair conditions on a regular basis as patients have limited access to
dermatologists. In fact, the largest organ of the human body makes up 15% of general practice consultations on a day-to-day
basis. Undergraduate dermatology training is minimal in many medical schools and without additional education in general
dermatology, GPs are often underequipped to handle common presentations.

Presented by noted dermatologists, the Advanced Certificate of General Dermatology will increase your clinical knowledge, teach you how to assess more complex and rare cases and make differential diagnoses for various dermatological conditions.  

This course is the second part of the three-part Professional Diploma of General Dermatology. The education pathway is Professional Certificate of General Dermatology, Advanced Certificate of General Dermatology and Professional Diploma of General Dermatology (coming soon).

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS AND COURSE REQUISITES

This course is for General Practitioners and for degree-qualified nurses and dermal therapists that work under their supervision. 

The pre-requisite for this advanced certificate course is the successful completion of the Professional Certificate of General Dermatology (or qualification deemed equivalent). HealthCert also highly recommends successful completion of at least 25 cases of general dermatology prior to enrolment.
