The Scottish Dermatological Society was founded
in 1924. The object of the Society is to promote, for the public
benefit, the knowledge, teaching, and practice of dermatology.
It pursues this object in a variety of ways including:-
by collecting, collating and publishing
information about dermatology
by stimulating, promoting and publishing appropriate medical and
scientific research, and by holding conferences, meetings and seminars.
The Society has a President, a Secretary
and an Executive Committee who meet regularly. Clinical and scientific
meetings are held 3 times a year, and regular symposia on relevant
topics are held jointly with members of other disciplines. The President
represents Scottish Dermatologists on the Executive of the British
Association of Dermatologists.
