Advanced Certificate of Skin Cancer Surgery

  • : Gold Coast Mc QLD 4217


The Advanced Certificate of Skin Cancer Surgery will teach you how to surgically remove skin cancers from anatomically complex and cosmetically sensitive areas with optimal scarring results. This highly practical course is led by noted skin cancer doctors and a team of experienced GPs to assist you in your practice. The program covers surgical procedures for the face and neck, rhomboid flaps on the cheek, peri-orbital reconstruction on the lower eyelid, rotation flaps on the scalp, and closures of lip defects.


The course provides advanced training in skin cancer surgery and teaches various techniques allowing GPs to treat more complex cases in the primary care setting. The program includes practical surgery sessions. Our team of surgical assistants will guide and support you as you practise the various surgical techniques.

The theory and practical sessions cover:

  • Anatomy of the head, neck, nose, lip, eyelid, ear, and upper and lower limbs
  • Advancement flaps and rhomboid flaps on the face
  • Rotational flaps in closure of scalp, cheek and distal limb defects
  • Full thickness and split thickness grafts on the face and lower limb defects
  • Closure of ear defects with flaps, grafts and wedges
  • Closure of upper lip and lateral nose defects with advancement, rhomboid and V-Y flaps

Course participants will:

  • Observe experts performing skin cancer surgery techniques on a large screen with close-up camera
  • Perform surgical techniques in a simulated environment and receive feedback
  • Participate in online discussion of patient cases, evaluate and make decisions
  • Receive a comprehensive course folder and research/readings in the field
  • Receive ongoing support post-course through webinars and case review
  • Optional skin cancer surgery clinical attachments are also available at dedicated clinics
