The IAD is an all Ireland professional body of dermatologists. The society was established some 50 years ago to advance knowledge on diseases of the skin. The IAD fulfils its objective by organising twice yearly meetings in the spring and autumn at which both national and international speakers who are at the cutting edge of dermatology research present their work. Our trainee members also present both scientific work and clinical papers for discussion at these meetings. The society offers scholarships/bursaries for attendance of trainees at international meetings and for electives at centres of excellence abroad.
