Definitions of scopes


A doctor who has completed the requirements of a provisional general scope will be registered within a general scope of practice. Examples are doctors who have completed their first post-graduate year and may be in vocational training and doctors who have not started, or have chosen not to do, vocational training.

A general scope of practice does not mean the doctor is working in general practice which is its own specialty. Doctors with a general scope can be working in any area of medicine.

Doctors practising within a general scope will be required to participate in an approved recertification programme to assist them in maintaining their competence.


A doctor who has completed their vocational training as a specialist and has appropriate qualifications and experience can be registered within a vocational scope of practice. This form of registration recognises the doctor as a specialist and allows them to work independently in New Zealand. A doctor registered in a vocational scope must participate in an approved continuing professional development programme to assist them in maintaining their competence.


Dermatology is the study, research and diagnosis of disorders, diseases, cancers, cosmetic, ageing and physiological conditions of the skin, fat, hair, nails and oral and genital membranes, and the management of these by different investigations and therapies, including but not limited to dermatohistopathology, topical and systemic medications, dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, phototherapy, laser therapy, radiotherapy, photodynamic therapy and other therapies that become available.
