Welcome from The ESPD President
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to the website of the European Society of Paediatric Dermatology (ESPD). If you are interested in Paediatric Dermatology and not yet a member you are definitely missing out! I would strongly recommend that you join the society, attend the famous annual meetings, expand your knowledge, and make new friends. Come and join the key people in this field today to help shape the future of the key people of tomorrow.
The ESPD was founded in 1984 by the pioneering clinicians of that time, when Paediatric Dermatology was a new specialty in Europe. As the specialty has grown, so the ESPD has become increasingly important in guiding and supporting Paediatric Dermatology in Europe and further afield. It represents both a hub of clinical excellence, and a focus of social interaction. This combination has given rise to vital exchange of clinical expertise, important research collaborations and long-term friendships. Ultimately the ESPD benefits all children with skin disease.
Membership brings the following other benefits:
Substantial reduction in registration fees for the annual ESPD congress
- Members-only access to the new ESPD Paediatric Dermatology training scheme with ESPD certification - will be launched in 2022
Members-only access to the scientific website Sci-ESPD, with regular updates on all the latest literature findings in Paediatric Dermatology
Members-only ESPD mentorship scheme – choose a mentor from the senior membership for a free annual one-to-one careers session

With all best wishes,
Prof. Veronica Kinsler
