Derm Soc Competition 2018-2019 Calling all junior doctors and medical students! Do you have what it takes? BSF Presents: BATTLE OF THE DERM SOCS - a competition open to all Dermatology Societies based within the UK. Show off your leadership and management skills against rival Derm Socs whilst raising money for the British Skin Foundation – the UK’s only charity supporting research into skin cancer and all skin disease. The victorious team will be announced at the British Association of Dermatologists annual conference in July 2019 (Liverpool) and be presented with a top dermatological prize for their society. The initiators of this competition, Sukhjit Dhariwal and Ewa Kloczko are hoping to bring together individual Derm Socs and the new generation of up and coming dermatologists to support research in Dermatology. Sukhjit explains,“We really wanted to start a movement to help the Dermatology community fund as much research into skin disease as possible.” Ewa adds,“We all have the same goal, to provide patients with treatments and cures that will improve their quality of life, and we would like to show that every little contribution matters, starting from medical students, volunteers, through to trainee doctors and nurses to researchers.” For more information on how to join, click here! Founded in 1996, the British Skin Foundation have supported over 350 research projects and awarded more than £16,000,000 in funding across all skin diseases. Whilst we are dedicated to raising money for research, we also aim to raise awareness of skin diseases in the wider community. We're committed to educating people about the different skin conditions, helping to reduce stigma and promote understanding. The British Skin Foundation receives no statutory funding and relies on completely on donations.
