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.
