Hosted by LearnSkin, the annual Integrative Dermatology Symposium (IDS) is designed to be an interactive and interdisciplinary educational getaway. The goal of IDS is to support your care of patients from common skin concerns to dermatology diseases, and aesthetics.
By bridging world experts from Western, Naturopathic, Ayurvedic, and Traditional Chinese Medicine together under one roof, IDS creates an experience unlike any other dermatology conference. Come with questions, and leave with practical pearls and a peer group of like-minded colleagues.
LearnSkin is a dedicated group of dermatologists and integrative medicine practitioners with a mission to support professionals in dermatology. Their goal is to share the latest scientific research and treatment options in dermatology for both Western and Eastern medicine to meet the growing demand for responsible, high quality, and evidence-based education bridging conventional and complementary medical approaches.
LearnSkin programs are designed to provide clinicians like you with skills that expand past what was learned in school, residency, and traditional conferences with the hope you inspire change in your patients and reach better outcomes in their overall care.
