Temporary closure

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our VU and wider communities and to reduce any risk associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the clinic is closed for face to face consultations until further notice. However, we are offering free telehealth Dermal consultations via Zoom.

The Dermal Clinic provides the same treatments that would be performed by qualified dermal (skin) clinicians in private dermatology, plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery practices.

Our dermal sciences students use the highest quality medical grade equipment in a best practice environment under the supervision of qualified dermal clinicians.

Staff, students and members of the public can use the clinics.

During COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering free telehealth consultations.
