Australasian Society for Cosmetic Dermatology (AscD)
In July 2013, the Board of the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc established the Australasian Society for Cosmetic Dermatology (ASCD).
The purpose of the ACSD is to foster, equalise access and improve training in cosmetic dermatology for all Australasian dermatologists and registrars and, more broadly, to share dermatologist's expertise with other disciplines.
The primary goal is to provide a national focus for training in cosmetic dermatology, and advocacy for this work.
The ASCD has three core responsibilities:
- To identify appropriate education and training options and opportunities for members of the ASCD;
- To conduct or arrange education, seminars, workshops or other activities; and
- To advise the Board of the Foundation on cosmetic dermatology education and training.
ASCD Education Sessions
The ASCD usually organise four mini seminars each year, as well as interesting sessions at the ACD's Annual Scientific Meetings. A calendar of those education sessions can be seen here.
These mini-seminars are held at the Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc, and are webcast for members of the ASCD, dermatologists and dermatology registrars. Access to the webcasts page requires secure access. If you require access, please do not hesitate to contact our National Education Officer.
These webcasts are recorded and those recordings are later placed in the ASCD video library for authorised users to access at a later date.
Membership of the ASCD is open to all College members and dermatology registrars.
