Our Doctors

What is a Dermatologist? 

A dermatologist is a specialist who has completed four years of formal, extensive training in skin, hair and nail disease, including skin cancer. All specialists will have extensive expertise in dermatology and can be recognised by having the letters FACD formally in their credentials. This indicates ongoing membership (while practising) and a completed fellowship with the Australasian College of Dermatologists. This is the only accredited training program for dermatologists.

What is a Registrar? 

At The Queensland Institute of Dermatology, we have 5 registrars training at our clinic. As an accredited training institute with the Australasian College of Dermatologists, you will see a registrar initially before the consultant when you come to an appointment. We are Brisbane's only private dermatology clinic providing unique hands-on training opportunities to future dermatologists. 

Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have been accepted into the Australasian College of Dermatologists Program. These doctors are working towards becoming dermatologists and spend four years doing intensive training and examination to ensure that the future of dermatology is preserved.
