Dr Claire Chambers is a histopathologist specialising in dermatopathology at Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology, Brisbane.
Graduating in Medicine from the University of Leicester in 2009, UK, Dr Chambers undertook her medical residency at Hinchingbrooke and Papworth Hospitals, Cambridgeshire. In 2012, she went on to specialist training in anatomical pathology at the University Hospitals of Leicester - a group of three hospitals in the area.
In early 2013, she took one year out from her UK pathology training and travelled to Australia to undertake further clinical training for four months in emergency medicine at Caboolture hospital and six months training in anatomical pathology at The Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital. She then returned to the UK to continue her pathology training in Leicester. In 2015, missing Australia and its fantastic lifestyle, she applied to continue the rest of her pathology training in Australia. She trained at The Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital and the Mater Hospital.
Dr Chambers was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia in 2018 and joined SNP's dermatopathology team the same year. She developed her interest in dermatopathology during her six years of pathology training and enjoys the challenges and variety of the sub-specialty. She has membership of the Australasian Dermatopathology Society.
In 2019, Dr Chambers was awarded the prestigious International Board Certificate in Dermatopathology. A maximum of only 35 applicants are accepted worldwide each year to sit for the stringent three-part examination, which is organised under the auspices of the International Committee for Dermatopathology (ICDP) and the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
Dr Chambers is passionate about Australia's unique native wildlife and the natural environment and loves the outdoors. She considers herself fortunate to be able to explore them from her home in Brisbane.
