The Sri Lanka College of Dermatologists is an organisation founded in 1985 and was then known as the Sri Lanka Association of Dermatologists. However in 2005 it gained its present name and continues to function as a research, development and training ground for practitioners in the field.
The endeavours of the College have seen a marked improvement in the advances of this area of expertise. So much so that in 2000 a specialised degree for this subject was launched at post graduate level and is organized by members of the College functioning under a separate Board of Study.
Our vision is To advance knowledge, promote research and communication between the dermatologists nationally and internationally.
Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin and its diseases, a unique specialty with both medical and surgical aspects. A dermatologist takes care of diseases,in the widest sense, and some cosmetic problems of the skin, scalp, hair, and nails.Read more about dermatology
