As an Australian citizen/resident with NZ medical registration, Keith has experience and insight into medical practice in both jurisdictions.

Dr Franz Strydom

MB ChB, BSc, HonBSc(Med Sci), MSc(Med Sci), FRNZCGP, FSCCA

After discovering his first melanoma as a 4th year medical student, Franz has been hooked on skin cancer ever since. Before doing medicine, he worked as a postgraduate researcher in medical physiology.

Franz was fortunate to undertake his medical degree in South Africa. This allowed a wide spectrum of experience. After immigrating to New Zealand in 2000 he has lived and worked in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty. Keith Monnington and Franz worked together on the clinic committee for the Ministry of Health pilot project in skin cancer. This was a very successful project that was later devolved into primary care. Franz was also involved in a similar project with Southern Cross, the major health insurer in New Zealand.

Franz is the owner of Skinspots Skin Cancer Clinic, one of the largest primary care skin cancer clinics in New Zealand. This clinic has paved the way for nurses to work as nurse specialist dermoscopists in New Zealand. Academically, Franz has been a presenter at every SCCA Congress and symposium. He would like to see the academic structure of the college grow both in stature and academic recognition. He has been actively involved in the training and up-skilling of GPs interested in skin cancer throughout New Zealand. Franz has been a lecturer for the Advanced Clinical Certificate of Dermoscopy, the Certificate of Dermoscopy and the Certificate of Skin Cancer Medicine.

One of his goals is to facilitate transparency of the board functions to all members. This, he believes is the only way that members can truly know if the board members they had voted for are acting responsibly. During the past 15 years Franz has worked towards accredited training and recognition of skin cancer by other colleges and medical councils. He believes this as the main goal for the college to achieve in the near future.
