Before starting your application, please ensure that your program satisfies the College’s minimum requirements for accreditation:
i. Four supervised general clinics per week
i. Three general clinics, and one specialty clinic per week. Please note: Paediatric dermatology is classified as a general clinic A three hour session in private practice is classified as a general clinic

iii. One histopathology training session per week.
iv. One formal structured education session per week (this may be out of hours).

If your program does not offer the complement of required educational and clinical training opportunities, you may apply for accreditation for a limited time on a pro-rata basis (eg 3 or 6 months). You may design a rotating roster depending on availability of teaching opportunities. However training offered must average out to provide the minimum requirements detailed above.
