WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY

“My visit to the Skin Cancer Centre at Redcliffe was very exciting and interesting with innovative and unexpected “twists” here and there, making the Centre really unique. Most of all, I appreciated you giving me unlimited access and insight into your organization 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 clinic.”

Dr. Darko Sulava, Vic

“I had a recent two-day Clinical Attachment at Redcliffe Skin Cancer Clinic. 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.”

Dr James Bushell, SA
