Development outcome

Chin Whybrew

Chin is a GP in Cheltenham. She has always had a passion for dermatology, and chose her GP training scheme on the basis of which ones included dermatology on the rotations. She did the Cardiff dermatology diploma in 2010, and stayed on to moderate the forums for another eight years afterwards, and after that she continues to deliver interactive talks for each module of the course. Since completing the Cardiff dermoscopy course in 2011, she has remained a tutor for this course as well. She joined the Primary Care Dermatology Society as an executive committee member, and has been on the educational subcommittee for some years, and is currently the dermoscopy lead.

She believes that everyone should be able to learn more about skin conditions, and everyone should be able to spot skin cancers, whatever role they work in. She has a philosophy that she will teach dermatology and dermoscopy to anyone who wants to listen, the only silly question is the one that goes unasked, and her main aim is always to inspire!
