Dr Tim Lynch is a specialist GP who graduated from The University of Queensland in 2004 and achieved his fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2013. He joined the Brisbane Skin team in 2022, having returned to Brisbane after living in Melbourne for nine years. He grew up in Central Queensland and studied pharmacy prior to medicine.
Tim has a strong focus on skin cancer medicine and surgery, having worked extensively in this field since 2009. He believes that all patients should have access to timely diagnosis and is very passionate about the early detection and management of pre-malignant and malignant skin lesions, including melanoma. His eight years at a well-regarded skin cancer clinic in Melbourne have allowed him to master the skills for non-surgical and surgical management of these.
Tim is interested in every patient’s story. He enjoys taking time to educate patients and answer questions during skin checks that are thorough and meticulous. He is a member of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia and holds certificates in primary care skin cancer medicine and surgery.
He has enjoyed teaching at surgical workshops for GPs and mentoring GPs and GP registrars during their skin cancer training. In 2022 he will also complete studies in the Master of Medicine (Skin Cancer), as a commitment to improving patient outcomes and furthering knowledge in this field.
