Skin cancer Training opportunity FNQ

- Do DPA restrictions stop you from learning new skills or practice ownership?

- Do you want to learn and train in skin cancer medicine and surgery in a non-corporate, supported and safe environment ?

- Have you spent thousands of dollars on skin cancer courses but find it difficult to implement those skills in clinical practice safely and with confidence?

- Have you dreamt of a SEA AND TREE change at the same time and to leave the big smoke behind without compromising on the perks of an international airport or shopping centres?

- Have you dreamt of working less and spending more of your time with your precious family?

- Have you ever wondered how easy it would be to learn skin cancer medicine and surgery if you had an onsite mentor?


We are looking for doctors interested in Skin cancer training. We are fully booked and need more doctors to cater for the expanding demand. We are a fully doctor owned, and operated clinic accredited for extended skills training in skin cancer by James Cook University for GP registrars. We have a very collegiate academic environment with regular teaching sessions, lunch time/zoom discussions and help with excisions.

No empty Pt slots, exciting work, upskilling, awesome tropics with everything you need in a capital city but without the price tag. Amazing schools, sports crazy town, James cook university, multicultural community and every possible outdoor activity available within an hour's car drive or boat ride (except snowfields of course).

We average around 20 NEW PATIENT bookings EVERY DAY. We are also a referral
Practice with regular GP referrals from other practices.

Can be hot and wet for 3 months but it's "just perfect" for the rest of the year and we spend more time outside than inside with the Weber being used 12 months a year.

Cannot be appreciated until you have come to see the area for yourself - give our region a try and you will not be disappointed.
