ABOUT IACD AND ACS(I)
The Association of Cutaneous Surgeons of India – ACS(I) – is the premier organization in the country devoted to the promotion and advancement of knowledge and skills in the field of surgical and aesthetic dermatology. The aim of the association is to educate dermatologists, conduct conferences and workshops, promote research and assist in public health education in the field of dermatologic surgery and, thereby, improve the quality of cutaneous surgery training in the country. ACS(I) is in existence since 1999. Its roots, however, go back to the last quinquennium of the 20th century when it was formed by the merger of two national bodies representing cutaneous surgeons in the country – the Association of Dermatologic Surgeons of India (ADSI) and the Indian Academy of Cutaneous Surgeons (IACS), established in 1995 and 1996 respectively.
The purpose of our academy is new and unrivaled, bringing together dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons with members of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. Cosmetic and pharmaceutical chemists will have the opportunity for an open and free interchange with physicians in an atmosphere conducive to learning.
Membership in the International Academy of Cosmetic Dermatology is open to physicians with an interest in cosmetic dermatology and to members of the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry who share similar goals.
