What is a Dermatology Fellow?
A Dermatology Fellow is a registered medical practitioner who is undertaking additional training in one or more specific areas of dermatology to become an expert within that field of dermatology. Sinclair Dermatology provides Fellowship training in hair and scalp diseases and in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. Dermatology Fellows are required to have completed post-graduate training in dermatology (either in Australia or abroad). However, if they trained abroad, they will not be recognised as specialist dermatologists in Australia. The consultation fee (and Medicare rebate) to see a Dermatology Fellow is lower than that of a Specialist Dermatologist. A referral from your GP is not required to see a Dermatology Fellow, but it is preferred.
What is a Dermatology Trainee?
A Dermatology Trainee is a registered medical practitioner undertaking additional dermatology training in order to become a Specialist Dermatologist in Australia. Dermatology Trainees are not Specialist Dermatologists but work under the supervision of a Specialist Dermatologist. The consultation fee to see a Dermatology Trainee is lower than that of a Specialist Dermatologist.
