The Dowling Dermatology Educational Club was established by Dr. Geoffrey Dowling, a London-based dermatologist in the late 1940’s. The ethos of the club is to bring consultants and trainee dermatologists together in learning and social environments, sharing the knowledge and experience of established specialists with those starting their training within the specialty.
A highlight of the Dowling Club programme is the annual overseas trip which combines visits to overseas dermatology departments and/or clinical meetings with the opportunity for seniors and juniors to socialize and travel to interesting destinations.
This year the overseas trip is to Nepal and we are delighted to be joining the Nepalese dermatologists for their annual meeting SODVELONCON in Kathmandu on Sunday 7th and Monday 8th April 2019 and to be contributing to the academic programme. The trip has proved to be extremely popular and there will be 50 UK dermatologists attending the meeting including 15 dermatology trainees (residents). The trainees will contribute to the residents programme.
We are all very much looking forward to our visit and to learning together.
