GP, Cosmetic Physician and Medical Educator

I am a General Practitioner and Cosmetic Physician from England. I have been working in Melbourne, Australia for the past 6 years and set up the successful Cityskin Cosmetic Clinic 5 years ago.

I am an educator for Monash University in Melbourne - teaching 4th year medical students on clinical placement and in 2014 received the award for GP educator of the year.

I love to pass on expertise and have trained cosmetic nurses and Doctors in the field of cosmetics. Now it is time to pass on skills to others.

Cosmetics is a hard industry to get into - nobody will give you a break. The courses will help you gain an understanding of anatomy, physiology and learn practical procedures through video and lecture notes.
