Raised in Melbourne, Dr. Sharma undertook her undergraduate medical degree (MBBS) at Adelaide University before coming back to Melbourne to undertake her internship at Royal Melbourne Hospital. After a few years of working in different parts of Australia, including remote areas, she decided to specialise in Dermatology.
As part of her 4 year post graduate training, Dr. Sharma spent one year in Singapore at the National Skin Centre learning the nuances of treating Asian skin and their diseases. After finishing her Dermatology fellowship exams (FACD), Dr. Sharma undertook a sub-specialty fellowship at Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago in paediatric dermatology. This institution is a world leader in treating children’s skin diseases. Dr. Sharma worked under the guidance of Professor Mancini and Professor Amy Paller, two prominent figures in dermatology.
Dr. Sharma has also undertaken her Masters of Public Health (MPH), specialising in nutrition, policy and advocacy, at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA. Dr. Sharma opened Inside Out Dermatology to help patients approach their skin diseases in a holistic manner.
