We provide world-class clinical care for our patients. Patients are reminded that highly qualified doctors training to become dermatologists may be involved in your care. 

The Skin Health Institute is a centre of excellence in dermatology and all Victorian dermatology registrars undertake their training at the Institute. These highly qualified dermatology registrars will be working closely with, and overseen by, senior consultant dermatologists, many of whom are regarded as world-leaders in their specialty.

Getting here

We are located on the corner of Drummond and Queensberry Streets, Carlton 


As part of the preparations for the Metro Tunnel project, a number of changes to roads in the Parkville/Carlton area will impact travel time to/from the Institute.

Road widening works in Queensberry Street has resulted in the removal of the median strip, which had 2-hour parking spots. There is now limited meter parking. Ample paid parking is available Melbourne Museum located in nearby Rathdowne Street.

Please visit the Metro Tunnel website and plan your journey.

Going Home

If you are having surgery, it is most important that you do not go home alone.

Please arrange for a relative or friend to come with you in a car or taxi. You must not go home on public transport or drive following your surgery.


The Skin Health Institute only treats patients over 18 years of age. For child services, please contact your local dermatologist.

Most clinics at the Institute require a referral from a specialist dermatologist.

The only clinics that can be referred directly by a general practitioner are the Hyperhidrosis, Radiotherapy and Skin Cancer Assessment Clinics. If you do not have a valid referral, you will incur greater out-of-pocket charges.
