Welcome to the Texas Dermatological Society’s new website.
Please visit us often for news and information about TDS, scheduled events, practice opportunities and information of interest for dematology residents, dermatologists and patients.
We will also be showcasing video messages from our members and sharing our discussions with you on this site, and on social media.
Please visit often, participate and help further TDS’s core purpose: to promote and advance the science and art of medicine appertaining to diseases of the skin.
If you have not already, take a moment to download the “Skin Advocate” application for your iPhone. It was developed by our own UT Southwestern resident Shadi Kourosh, MD in conjunction with Dr. Paul Bergstresser and the Society of Investigative Dermatology.
Dr. Kourosh presented the app at the TDS Fall Meeting in Temple. The app allows you quickly and electronically provide patients with support group information sent as an anonymous email. There is no cost involved. Just search the iPhone App store for “dermatology” or “skin advocate”.
Please spread the word to other colleagues or programs and help make patient advocacy go viral!
