Trade article: Dermatology Congress 2019 – The 5th Combined Dermatology Congress


*A2 Magazine is a media sponsor of this congress*

*This event is not for public participation* 

Dermatology is a speciality area of medicine dealing with both the medical and surgical aspects of the skin, nails, hair and its associated diseases.

The Dermatological Society of South Africa aims to promote the science and practice of dermatology in South Africa through education and mentoring and plays an important role in the requirements for future dermatological education for both undergraduates and graduates.

A dermatologist is a medically qualified doctor who has then decided to spend several years training specifically in dermatology. In South Africa, the training to become a fully-qualified specialist in dermatology is agreed nationally to ensure that wherever you practice in the country, the standard of dermatological care will be the same.

The congress will be taking place 12-15 September 2019, at The Academic Conference Centre, V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
