GPs manage skin cancer at a rate of 1.2/100 encounters, and excision of skin lesions is one of the most common procedures in general practice. There is an expectation that GP registrars should be able to comprehensively assess and manage skin cancers, including undertaking a range of related minor procedures.
This short course provides an introduction on how to screen and identify suspicious skin lesions in a busy general practice. The video lectures are based on university quality-assured skin cancer certificate courses which have been completed by thousands of medical professionals worldwide.

You are faced with a variety of choices as you go through your training, and a career in general practice allows you to pursue areas of specific clinical interest. The job market for registrars is more competitive than ever due to increased cohort numbers so you might choose to undertake further formal studies and develop specific skills to set yourself apart.
In collaboration with leading subject specialists, HealthCert offers medical courses at professional certificate, advanced certificate and professional diploma levels in skin cancer medicine, skin cancer surgery, dermoscopy, general dermatology, aesthetic medicine, and clinical procedures. All programs are fully accredited and provide academic credit towards multiple university Masters and clinical attachment programs.
Skin cancer is the most common dermatological condition seen in general practice - and it is not overly complex to manage if you have the right skill set. This program will not only give you the knowledge required to safely and confidently diagnose and treat the vast majority of skin lesions, but it will also help grow your practice and increase your revenue.
Surgery is still considered the most effective and definitive skin cancer treatment. With limited access to surgeons and year-long waiting lists at public hospitals, patients depend on skilled general practitioners who can offer an immediate solution to their concerns. This program is ideal for increasing your confidence in the management of complex skin cancer cases.
Acquiring in-depth knowledge in dermoscopy will enable you to assess skin lesions with greater accuracy, detect melanomas in the early stages, and avoid unnecessary excisions. Presented by global leaders in the field, this online program will equip you with the substantial knowledge required to diagnose a wide range of lesions on any body part, skin type and age group.
The Dermatopathology Masterclass course offers a comprehensive guide to the principles of dermatopathology and will help you understand and interpret pathology reports. Led by experts in the field, the masterclass will develop your overall diagnostic skills to an accomplished level and teach you what dermatoscopic features correlate with histology slides.
GPs are confronted with common skin, hair and nail conditions on a regular basis. As medical schools offer minimal dermatology training, GPs are often underequipped to handle common presentations. Delivered by noted dermatologists, this online program will teach you how to manage major dermatological conditions and general disease states manifesting through the skin.
The latest trends in health and skin care result in an increased demand for skin repair and rejuvenation services - and skilled practitioners. Delivered by GPs for GPs, this strictly science-based program offers expert demonstrations and training in the evolving field of aesthetic medicine, including the business knowledge required to integrate the services into general practice.
With Medicare rebates remaining low for consultations and the cost of providing medical care increasing, performing clinical procedures in your practice will not only reduce referrals but also increase your revenue. This program covers a range of foundation and advanced procedures, including general surgery techniques, contraceptive procedures, and joint injections.
This three-part online program is tailored for medical practitioners who wish to gain a better understanding of nutrition management in order to improve patient outcomes, especially for those patients with conditions commonly seen in general practice, such as obesity, diabetes, pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, cancer and eating disorders.
You can choose from a range of courses available online in skin cancer medicine, dermoscopy, general dermatology, and medical nutrition management. The programs guarantee a flexible learning experience without incurring out-of-office mes and travel expenses. You will also have the opportunity to attend the practical face-to-face equivalent of the course (if available) or participate in a clinical attachment program.
