MUDr. Daniela Vaňousová summarizes the goal of her internship by explaining that “New Zealand and Australia are two countries with the highest incidence rates of skin cancer in the world. My goal while there was to gain the needed experience in examining skin lesions (marks) with a dermatoscope. This allows for very early detection of skin cancers, especially malignant melanona which is the the most deadly type of all.”
This experienced dermatologist successfully completed her internship between February and July 2015 where she gradually explored the practices of local physicians at three various locations. At the Waikato hospital, she took part in virtual dermatoscopy workshops guided by Amanda Oakley MD who is regarded as one of the leading professionals in the field, especially with regards to the early detection of skin cancer. The second place of MUDr. Daniela Vaňousová’s presence was the dermatology department of the North Shore hospital in Auckland. This is where she had the chance to see and meet a wide range of patients with complicated cases of skin cancer. At the Skin Institute in Auckland, dermatologist Daniela Vaňousová was able to better explore the day-to-day practice of a dermatologist focused on the examination of skin lesions. Further she also expanded her experience in the surgical removal of skin cancers as well as the follow-up care of patients with a history of multiple skin cancer occurences.
“During my stay in New Zealand, I took part in several one-day internships in other specialized dermatological and venereal clinics and participated in regular meetings of dermatologists at the Green Lane Hospital in Auckland City. I also attended and successfully completed two dermatoscopy courses” adds the dermatologist.
The experience gained from the internship will be applied while examining patients at Canadian Medical Care. Patients will be offered preventive examinations of skin lesions (marks), detection of skin cancer at a very early stage, monitoring of obscure lesions and careful removal of growths that require it. Special care will be given to patients at risk.
Did you know...
… that in the Czech Republic, the number of patients diagnosed with malignant melanoma is on the rise? Early diagnosis and the accompanying surgical removal of the malignant tumor can save the patient’s life. Early diagnosis of other types of skin cancer minimizes the extent of surgery required to remove the tumor.
