Specialist Dermatology Trainees
Dubbo Dermatology was instrumental in establishing a Specialist Trainee Position shared between Dubbo and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. A Dermatology registrar in the training scheme consults in Dubbo on Monday and Tuesday each week. This is supported by a second specialist trainee visiting Dubbo on rotation from Darlinghurst twice a month.


The phototherapy unit is open four days per week. There is a cabinet narrow band UVB machine for full-body treatment and a hand/foot machine for localised treatment. Exposure of the skin to ultraviolet (UV) light acts by reducing inflammation in the skin. It is used to treat psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo and itching. The treatment is administered two to three times per week. These treatments are bulk-billed. https://www.dermcoll.edu.au/atoz/phototherapy/
