Clinical Attachment in Skin Cancer Medicine

  • : Redcliffe QLD 4020
PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Located in Queensland, infamously known as the "Skin Cancer Capital of the World", The Redcliffe Skin Cancer Centre provides a “one-stop shop” to patients for lesion diagnosis and treatment and a referral centre to local GPs. Participants can solidify their knowledge in this dedicated skin cancer centre by spending two to five working days observing and assisting experienced skin cancer doctors – from initial consultations and patient treatment options to surgical procedures, use of equipment, Medicare billing and patient follow-ups. Clinical attachments are typically run on a Monday and Tuesday. As a result, the number of clinical attachment places are limited.

THE FACILITY

The Redcliffe Skin Cancer Centre is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art clinic and referral centre. The centre is easily accessible and is located just 20 minutes north of Brisbane Airport at Redcliffe. The centre operates with dedicated surgical facilities and trained nursing and administration staff. It not only provides a service for self-referred patients but also supports local GPs as a referral centre in their more complex cases. Since 2009, the team has treated over 60,000 patients, working hard towards reducing the impact of melanoma for patients Australia-wide.
