Skin Excision Evaluation Program

How does the program work?


Our Skin Excision Evaluation Program is highly valuable, as it helps program participants analyse their diagnostic skill for identification of high-risk lesions through monthly reports and data that we provide via the CPD Portal in eResults.

The annual criteria for our Skin Program include:

  • 40 histology samples recommended
  • Samples must be submitted with the purple program Request Form and ‘coded’ correctly
  • Reflection Activity completed (emailed latter part of the year)


What histology samples are included?
