The Seattle Dermatologic Society (SDS) started in the 1960's as a forum to promote continuing education and exchange of ideas regarding patient care. Because of this emphasis on education, the SDS has always had a close partnership with the UW Division of Dermatology.

Currently, SDS and UW Division of Dermatology work together to bring continuing education components to the Society's monthly meetings. This includes education both in the form of lecture and of patient presentation and discussion.

Seattle Dermatologic Society Meetings are currently held virtually via Zoom, but have historically been held at UWMC Derm Clinic, 4225 Roosevelt Way NE and next door at 4245 Roosevelt Way NE in Seattle, Washington. Please see the Seattle Dermatologic Society website for meeting dates.
