Skin cancer is one of the most common dermatological conditions seen in general practice – and it is not overly complex to manage if you have the right skill set. This certificate course has been specifically designed for time-poor general practitioners wishing to acquire the knowledge required to safely and confidently diagnose and treat commonly encountered skin lesions.
The two-day face-to-face course combines interactive lectures, case discussions and surgical practical sessions on pork parts.
This course is the first part of the three-part Professional Diploma of Skin Cancer Medicine, quality-assured by Bond University.
