Dr Daniel Bothma


-- Meet the Practice Principal

Dr Daniel Bothma is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Dermatology and specialist general practitioner. He is a certified Fellow of the Skin Cancer Institute, and holds membership of the International Society of Dermatology, the Skin Cancer College of Australasia, the International Dermoscopy Society, and the International Association of Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine.


He completed his medical training at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. He completed basic specialist training in surgery in the UK, followed by advanced specialist training in emergency medicine in the UK, Australia, and Canada. After some years as emergency physician an increasing interest in skin conditions persuaded him to change course and start a further four years of postgraduate education in dermatology, including a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dermatology (with distinction), a Master of Science in Clinical Dermatology (with distinction), and culminating in the Fellowship of the Australian Institute of Dermatology.


He has trained with dermatologists, skin cancer experts, dermatopathologists, and plastic surgeons. His training included certification in skin cancer management, advanced certification in dermoscopy, a diploma in skin cancer surgery (advanced reconstruction techniques including flaps and grafts), and expertise in injectables and cosmetic skin therapies.

His expertise includes skin cancer management (including non-surgical therapies and advanced skin surgery), and management of precancerous skin lesions. His special interests are acne/acne scarring, rosacea, and rashes.

Daniel has held clinical teaching positions and has presented at several conferences. His research has focused on comparing different treatment modalities for photo-aging induced skin lesions.


Outside of medicine Daniel is an average surfer and “boot-camp”-style fitness enthusiast, and loves to explore the Sunshine Coast with his family.

Fellowship of the Australian Institute of Dermatology guarantees expertise

A Fellow of the Australian Institute of Dermatology is a medical doctor who has undertaken at least three years of postgraduate training in diseases of the skin. Most Fellows completed training programs in other specialties such as emergency medicine or general practice prior to commencing postgraduate education in dermatology. The comprehensive training program covers all aspects of medical dermatology, dermatoscopy, dermatopathology, skin cancer, cosmetic dermatology, and procedural dermatology. On completion of the fellowship examination, trainees become ‘Fellows’ of the Australian Institute of Dermatology who practice dermatology with a highly sophisticated level of expertise.
