The first year of our Battle of the DermSocs competition was a great success and the BSF team would like to say a big THANK YOU! To everyone who took part and helped raise vital funds for research into skin disease and skin cancer. 

The competition consists of three categories; Battle of the DermSocs Champions, Most Creative and Best Media Presence

The 2018/2019 winners are...



SGUL organised numerous events including a specialities revision weekend course and a surgical skills for skin course, in addition to multiple bake sales. They raised an outstanding £3318! An amazing accomplishment! We are truly grateful to Giulia Rinaldi, Roopa Farooki, Eve Chiu, Alena Malik, Rohith Kumar, Emily Orr and Michelle Warncke for their hard work and dedication. 

MOST CREATIVE: Cambridge University Dermsoc

We loved the fact the team reached out to their community and organised an awareness session at a local school for year 6 pupils on acne and sun protection. In addition, the children baked and sold cakes to fundraise! Thank you to the committee members Zara Ali, Maria Wang, Lucy Mackie, Arvindth Sekaran and Jeremy Solly.

BEST SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE: Barts and The London DermSoc

We thought the team did a great job promoting their fundraising events and generating awareness of skin disease on their social media accounts! They also raised a fantastic £1,371 through Olivia's birthday, multiple bake sales and teaching events. Thank you very much to all the committee members: Olivia Knowles, Penelope-Zoi Stavrou, Rayyan Barakat, Sita Shah and Reem Salman. 

We hope you will all be taking part in our 2019/2020 and will work even harder to obtain the grand title of Battle of the DermSocs 2019/2020 Champions! For more information CLICK HERE
