I graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1988 (MBMS). I hold a Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practice (FRACGP) and a Diploma in Child Health (UniSydney).


Over the years as a rural GP I managed many patients with skin cancer and became aware of a high demand on specialised primary health skin cancer services in rural areas. I am passionate about learning and advancing professional skills and undertook several post-graduate diploma courses in skin cancer medicine and surgery. This meant that my patients did not require a referral to a specialized medical service and had direct access to a doctor with training and experience.

As a doctor with many years of experience in general practice, my focus has been on integrative medicine and psychological health. Over the last 15 years I have dedicated my practice to specializing in skin cancer medicine and surgery. My general practice skill and experience is an added benefit in the diagnosis of skin disorders.




I am an Accredited Skin Cancer Doctor with The Skin Cancer College Australasia (SCCA), a member of the International Dermoscopy Society and  Fellow of Skin Cancer Institute.

The SCCA accreditation means that Dr Rohde has undertaken a Diploma in Skin Cancer Medicine and Surgery and has proven skills and knowledge in the diagnosis and management of skin cancer recognized by the Skin Cancer College Australasia. The accreditation is reviewed by the College and maintained by ongoing medical education.


Dr Rohde has a special interest in digital dermoscopy, early detection and prevention of skin cancer. She holds a Diploma in Dermoscopy from the International Dermoscopy Society, and has also undertaken a further six month Diploma course in Dermoscopy from the Skin Cancer College Australasia. Dermoscopy is a proven clinical skill in skin cancer and melanoma detection.


“Dermoscopy is proven clinically useful tool and enables a high level of early melanoma detection proven by quarterly  clinical surgical audit data.”


Dr Rohde is an Accredited Skin Cancer Doctor practicing at the Highlands Skin Cancer Clinic, Bowral and Ellesmere Specialist Medical Centre in Goulburn.
