For Clinicians

Referral Process

Appointments at Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) are by clinician referral only. Clinicians and patients can contact the Institute on +61 2 9911 7200 with any questions about our referral process. 
Clinical Care  
MIA is an independent, non-profit organisation that facilitates melanoma treatment and care through clinicians who are credentialed with the Institute. The clinics associated with MIA do not provide public outpatient services. All patients are billed for their direct clinical care by the private attending physician. 
Patients referred to the MIA's affiliated specialist medical practitioners are eligible for a Medicare rebate.
