The Seattle Dermatological 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 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. 

Meeting format

The current meeting format is:

Patient Presentations 5-5:30pm

Patient presentations are held in the Dermatology Clinic at UWMC from 5-5:30 pm. 

  • Physicians should complete a patient protocol form  for each patient they plan to present and bring 10 copies to the meeting. 
  • Patients should be instructed to arrive in clinic a few minutes prior to 5:00. 
  • Driving directions and map to UWMC should be provided to patients who will be presented.
