My visit to the Redcliffe Skin Cancer Centre was very exciting and interesting with innovative and unexpected “twists” here and there. Most of all, I appreciated you giving me unlimited access into your organisation and insights on how things should be done and run. You have inspired me and I have "converted" to skin cancer management. I thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to experience your environment and I would like to thank every one of the friendly staff at the clinic for their support. Anyone interested in pursuing skin cancer management, should not miss the opportunity to visit your centre.

The structured clinical attachment at the Redcliffe Skin Cancer Centre has provided an excellent first-hand experience and insight into many procedural aspects of skin cancer medicine management. It is a well-organised program which has afforded me good practical experience in this expanding area of medical practice. Thoroughly recommended.

Dr A. McIntosh, VIC


I had a recent two-day clinical attachment at Redcliffe Skin Cancer Centre. It is a new purpose-built practice and really showed me how to run a very high-standard skin cancer practice. All the staff are very friendly and highly efficient. The doctors are very keen to teach and I left with many new techniques and ideas. I can recommend this attachment to any doctor with an interest in skin cancer.
