The World Congress of Dermatology (WCD) takes place every 4 years. Since 1889 WCD has provided an opportunity for dermatologists to come together to share their clinical experiences and scientific advances on both a professional and personal level.
In 2019 we welcome you to join us in Milan, Italy. Milan has a rich historic heritage, dating back to when it was the capital of the Western Roman Empire. While in Milan, Leonardo da Vinci, the quintessential Renaissance artist and scientist, drew his iconic Vitruvian man and painted the world-renowned Last Supper. The city is adorned with many gorgeous buildings, from both the past and the present. Today Milan is a dynamic and trendy city, a renowned international centre for fashion and design as well as the arts and science.
The Congress will focus on major breakthroughs and advances in Dermatology, ranging from clinical practice to research, technology and innovation. There will be many opportunities for experienced clinicians as well as young dermatologists, nurses and allied professionals. Outstanding dermatologists from around the world will play a vital role in every WCD session as chairs, co-chairs, and speakers. We will also offer a varied social programme to provide an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. We are confident that our scientific organisation, together with the well-known Italian hospitality, will make the 24th WCD a memorable event.
