Expert Workshop in Skin Cancer Surgery | Sydney

The Professional Diploma of Skin Cancer Surgery provides an essential step towards subspecialisation in skin cancer surgery. You will learn the most advanced surgery techniques on atomically complex and cosmetically sensitive areas.

The program covers surgical procedures for the nose and the lower limb, reconstruction of alar and sidewall nasal defects, reconstruction of the nasal tip and glabellar defects, skin grafts and flaps for the lower limb.

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.
