About me

Dr Birnie studied medicine at the University of Bristol, which was followed by two years in London and five years of Dermatology training in Nottingham. There he discovered a passion for dermatological surgery and subsequently was selected for a fellowship in dermatological surgery at the Welsh Institute of Dermatology in Cardiff where he increased his repertoire of complex closures following the excision of skin cancers and learnt how to perform Mohs micrographic surgery.

Dr Birnie is constantly looking for new skills and techniques, and has travelled widely to gain experience, including to California, as well as attending National meetings. He is also passionate about teaching; he lectures and demonstrates on surgical workshops locally and internationally.

He returned to Kent in May 2011 following a year spent in Durban, South Africa. There, he set up a skin cancer centre, offering free treatment for those who could not afford care, from which he trained the local dermatologists in both basic and advanced skin cancer surgery and also set up the first recognised Mohs micrographic surgery service in the country.

Dr Birnie has launched Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen - an exceptional quality sunscreen sold at the lowest price possible with the aim of allowing more people to use more sunscreen and thus reduce the incidence of skin cancer. It is available on Amazon who are supporting his project.
