Dr Stephanie Sturm qualified in 1995 from the University of Auckland. She then went on to do part of an Emergency Medicine Fellowship, before deciding to switch to General Practice. She achieved her GP Fellowship in 2004 and has been a GP College Examiner and Assessor.
Stephanie no longer practices as a general practitioner, instead choosing to focus on providing Skin Cancer, Dermatology and Appearance Medicine services.
Stephanie has completed Certificates in Dermatoscopy and Skin Cancer Management and holds a GP fellowship in Dermatology from the Australian Institute of Dermatology. She has also completed a Diploma in Dermatoscopy and is a also member of the NZSCD’s. Stephanie is also a member of the New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine (NZSCM) with a Diploma in Cosmetic Medicine and helped set up the Skin Institute CANSI training programme for Skin Institute nurses about 8 years ago.
Her Appearance Medicine interests lie in botulinum toxin, fillers and light-based therapies. She believes that traditional and appearance medicine work well together and can enhance one’s well-being.
Stephanie’s drive for working in this industry is to service the very real need of addressing the after-effects of chronic sun-exposure: skin cancer and/or premature ageing of the skin.
Outside of work, Stephanie likes going for walks with her dog, running, doing cryptic crosswords and tramping with friends.
Dr Stephanie Sturm is a Southern Cross Affiliated Provider.
