  • A spirit of community among its members
  • Public interest relating to dermatology

Items of Interest


The CDS website is intended to be a resource to the Chicago dermatological community, and to celebrate the accomplishments of our members over the years.  In addition to information about the regular CDS clinical conferences, the site also provides information and videos concerning the rich history of dermatology in Chicago, including the pioneers of the profession.  We hope you will take some time to browse through the content and that you find it interesting.
