Biography:

Dr Amanda Saracino is a clinical and academic Dermatologist with experience working in a variety of settings in both Melbourne and London. She is a Fellow of the Australasian College of Dermatologists and is also recognised as a consultant Dermatologist by the Royal College of Physicians and General Medical Council in the UK. Amanda can therefore provide expert care for all skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, skin cancer and mole checks. Further, Amanda has extensive expertise in complex medical, inflammatory and autoimmune skin conditions and is a sub-specialist in Connective Tissue Diseases (such as Cutaneous Lupus and Scleroderma). She has a PhD from University College London in the molecular aetiopathogenesis of sclerotic skin diseases.

After finishing Dux of Monash medical school in 2007, Amanda completed her specialty Dermatology training with the Australasian College of Dermatologists at tertiary referral hospitals in Melbourne and London. During this training she was awarded the Ken Paver and President’s Medals for academic excellence. She later worked for several years at the internationally renowned Scleroderma and Connective Tissue Disease Centre at the Royal Free Hospital in London. Here, she completed a clinical fellowship, was appointed as one of two subspecialty consultant Dermatologists in the joint Dermatology/Rheumatology service, received a number of national and international research awards and grants, and was awarded her PhD. At this time Amanda was also affiliated with the University College London Hospital’s clinical and academic Lupus Unit and ran her own private Dermatology practice on Harley Street.

Amanda is widely published in Australian, UK, European and US Dermatology, Rheumatology and Scleroderma medical journals and speaks at local and international seminars and conferences in her sub-specialty field of Connective Tissue Diseases. Her key areas of ongoing research are in the molecular genetics of sclerotic skin diseases and treatment of the skin manifestations of Lupus.

Amanda thoroughly enjoys all aspects of her clinical work, and her genuine care and naturally kind nature are demonstrated by her empathy, patience, clear communication and wholehearted commitment to her patients.
