The Victorian Melanoma Service (VMS) is one of Australia’s largest multidisciplinary treatment services for melanoma. It was established in 1994 to provide a comprehensive assessment for people with melanoma by providing them with ‘one-stop shop’ access to all medical and other specialists involved in the treatment of melanoma.
The Melanoma Clinic at Alfred Health is conducted by the Victorian Melanoma Service, which diagnoses, treats and provides follow-up for people with melanoma. We provide wide-ranging information and advice about melanoma and the most appropriate way to treat it. Assessment is provided by specialists in dermatology, pathology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, general surgery, plastic surgery, nursing and psychology. The service participates in trials of new treatments, and is available to patients who have been recently diagnosed with melanoma or who want second opinions about their care.
