About Dr Cherng Jong
After I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1997, I underwent postgraduate training in the UK. In 2008, I completed specialist dermatology training. I’ve been a Consultant Dermatologist for 15 years, two of which were spent in Newcastle, Australia.
I have a special interest in treating skin cancers and wide ranges of rashes and dermatology conditions. From 2016 to 2023 I was the Clinical and Skin Cancer Lead for West Kent Dermatology Service.
I am a clinical supervisor for medical students, specialist nurses, nurse prescribers and GPs with special interests in dermatology. I have published papers on the impact of photosensitive skin conditions on quality of life and on contact allergies. I was the lead author of a chapter titled Infections and Infestations in the Dermatology Training textbook for registrars.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and gardening.
