Course Overview

The Advanced Certificate of Dermatoscopy online course has all the magic of our highly rated in person courses (check out our reviews on Trustpilot!) but with more detail to provide you with a richer more advanced understanding of dermatoscopy. It will provide you with a depth of knowledge that can only be achieved through the reinforcement of learning that the online course allows.

Professor Cliff Rosendahl (University of Queensland, Australia) and Professor Amanda Oakley (University of Auckland, New Zealand and the founder of Dermnet) will give you the excellent foundation you need to confidently use dermatoscopy to diagnose and manage lesions.

Learning Objectives 

  • Identify the fundamental workings of a dermatoscope.
  • Develop a strong understanding of the basics of dermatoscopy and how essential it is in aiding you to diagnose and manage lesions.
  • Explain how to conduct a comprehensive skin examination.
  • Recognise the fundamental dermatoscopic features of common benign lesions led by Professor Amanda Oakley.
  • Learn to use the diagnostic algorithms co-founded by Professor Cliff Rosendahl - ‘Chaos and Clues’ and 'Prediction without Pigment'.
  • Develop the tools necessary to help you decide which lesions can be left and which require excising - without needing to diagnose exactly what the lesion is.
