The role of sustainability education within dermatological surgery in the United Kingdom
Main Article Content
Sustainability recognises the limited planetary resources and is characterised by being able to sufficiently meet the needs of the current population without compromising future generations. The most recent iteration of the General Medical Council (United Kingdom) ‘Outcome for Graduates’ document required newly qualified doctors to have knowledge of sustainable healthcare (General Medical Council, 2018). Medical education is a key pillar in empowering the medical workforce to recognise the sustainability of the health services they provide and build competencies to reconfigure services and care pathways that will be resilient to the effects of climate change. This correspondence discusses the role of sustainability education within dermatological surgery in the United Kingdom.
