XIII International Congress of Dermatology
Secured by Ambassador, Professor Rodney Sinclair
The International Congress of Dermatology attracts over 3,000 people from all over the world. Bringing the Congress to Melbourne has never been more relevant as Victorian dermatologists perform their research in world class facilities and have an excellent rural outreach strategy.
The national dermatology workforce is projected to be in critical shortage by 2030. New models of training in expanded settings, such as rural and private practice, is essential to meet the future dermatology service demands. The ACD take our responsibility as educators of future generations of dermatologists very seriously.
With the number of skin cancer diagnoses increasing, coupled with an aging population, the demand for skin cancer prevention, surveillance and management is high. The rapid advent of artificial intelligence diagnostic technology, laser and other cosmetic technologies has raised concerns around quality assurance and lack of regulation.
The International Congress of Dermatology provides an open forum for the discussion and sharing of ideas for training and advances in technology for sustainability.
