British Association of Dermatologists – 98th Annual Meeting, Edinburgh

The British Association of Dermatologists Annual Meeting has evolved over the 25 years I have attended; from a networking event focussed on basic science, which was of little use to most of those in clinical practice, to a real educational update meeting. Twenty-five years ago, registrars presented their basic science research, the guest lectures were esoteric basic science and the pharmaceutical exhibition was enormous. In contrast, at the 2018 meeting there was a plenary session, with relevant presentations, running all day, complemented by several parallel sessions covering a host of special interests. The organisers’ aim was to provide practical updates across most of dermatology, as practiced in the UK.

The meeting in Edinburgh was well structured and provided a good update on most aspects of my dermatology practice. I think it was quite the best meeting I have attended for several years.
