Dr David Gill

Dermatologist and MOHS Surgeon

Dr Gill successfully completed his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at Melbourne University in 1991. He spent his undergraduate years and residency at St Vincent’s hospital (Fitzroy, Victoria). Dr Gill worked as a general practitioner for several years but found his real interest lay in treating skin disease and skin surgery.

Dr Gill was fortunate enough to gain a training position in the highly sought after dermatology training program in Victoria in 1998 and completed a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Epidemiology from Monash University that same year. Dr Gill then completed his training and attained his Fellowship from the Australasian College of Dermatologists in 2001.

After completing general dermatology training and working as a specialist dermatologist for several years, he decided to pursue further training in skin cancer surgery. In 2007, Dr Gill completed his training in Mohs surgery and subsequently travelled to the United States in 2010 to sit further examinations in Mohs micrographic surgery. He was awarded a Fellowship of the American Society of Moh’s Surgery and is recognised as a Mohs micrographic skin cancer surgeon by the Australasian College of Dermatologists.

Dr Gills' other areas of interest include teaching skin cancer diagnosis and treatment. He is accredited by the Australasian College of Dermatologists as a Mohs surgery trainer and trains other dermatologists and dermatologist registrars in this specialised technique. He is regularly involved in providing annual general practitioner workshops including presentations at the Australasian College of Dermatologists General Practitioner Skin Cancer workshop. David has also had involvement as an external examiner for the dermatology exams in Sri Lanka.


Currently Dr Gill works in a private practice in Hawthorn East and Ashwood at Skin Cancer Day Surgery. Dr Gill also regularly consults at The Royal Melbourne Hospital performing skin cancer surgery on a weekly basis.
