A new web site for the New Zealand Dermatological Society Incorporated (NZDSI)

Welcome to the New Zealand Dermatological Society Incorporated (NZDSI) news blog. NZDSI is the national organisation representing New Zealand dermatologists (Skin Specialists).

We hope you find it interesting and informative. On this website you can find a list of all NZDSI dermatologists in New Zealand, information on dermatology, updates from the society and more! Follow us on Twitter to find out what’s happening in the world of the NZDSI!

This blog will be the leading source of information for dermatology in New Zealand. We will bring you accurate, interesting, local and international dermatology news.

Did you know that in New Zealand it takes at least 13 long and rigorous years to train as a dermatologist from the time of entering medical school? Make sure your skin specialist is a dermatologist! Only NZDSI dermatologists are allowed to use the NZDSI logo so you can check if your skin specialist is a dermatologist by looking right here at the NZDSI site or the Medical Council of New Zealand site.

This week the NZDSI meets for its annual scientific meeting at Te Papa, Wellington. The meeting will explore the new scientific advances in dermatology. Distinguished international speakers will talk about the latest advances in psoriasis and skin cancer surgery. Expert New Zealand dermatologists will talk about specific areas of interest in dermatology.
