The International Alliance for Global Health Dermatology
GLODERM works to build connections between dermatologists, trainees, and healthcare professionals around the world. It envisions a world where every individual, regardless of background, has the opportunity to achieve skin health. Their mission is to promote skin health worldwide through enhanced access to care, training, advocacy, capacity building, clinical care, and research. Raising awareness about skin health within the overall well-being of communities and to reduce the burden of both common and neglected skin diseases.
Skin Health for Everyone, Everywhere
There are three strands to GLODERM's work:
- Mentorship Programme
- Trainee Webinar Series
- Networking Meetings

The Mentorship Programme is a cornerstone of GLODERM’s sustainable and integrated approach to improving dermatologic clinical care, education, research, policy, and advocacy. The programme brings together Mentor-Mentee Pairs from all over the world to share knowledge and grow the skills needed for Mentees to become ‘change-makers’.
Over the 12-month programme the Mentees will have monthly online meetings with their Mentor and follow a webinar programme, with other cohort members, to develop and enhance their leadership and global health dermatology skills.
This programme does not focus on clinical skills instead it aims to create and enhance skills in the areas of programme management, leadership, fundraising, and publication. Developing the global health dermatology leaders of tomorrow, today.
There will also be a one-month placement where the Mentee will join their Mentor for an intensive in-person skills development phase. The programme will ensure a series of networking opportunities, including attendance of an international dermatology conference where possible.
This will grow a community of future ‘change-makers’ and develop a network of GLODERM Mentees who can offer encouragement and support to each other as they build programmes, start initiatives, train healthcare workers, and improve access to skin health services globally.
Trainee Webinar Series
The GLODERM Educational Webinar Series provides dermatology content across a broad range of topics. The webinars are aimed at trainees from around the world, they are free to access and form a great resource library for any healthcare professional with an interest in dermatology.
These monthly webinars are jointly hosted by an internationally renowned dermatologist as well as a GLODERM Trainee, bringing together the two perspectives for a unique learning opportunity.
