Diploma of Dermoscopy
Commencing 8 & 9 February 2014
|Summary||The Diploma of Dermoscopy is designed specifically for Australasian primary care providers and is relevant to the clinical material encountered in day to day practice in our region.
It will enable those already using dermoscopy an opportunity to significantly enhance their skills. Graduates will be expected to be competent in the diagnosis of pigmented skin lesions at near expert level.
Unique features of the Diploma include the allocation of an experienced tutor to each student to offer support and feedback, and the use of high resolution quality images for teaching and assessment.
The course will require a time commitment of approximately five hours per week, and students are required to maintain a surgical audit of all lesions excised and submit a series of 20 dermoscopic case reports from their own practice.
|Duration||24 weeks (Feb 2014 to mid-July 2014)
