[ Background ] Background on Organization ::

Founded in 1994 by Rhett J. Drugge. M.D., the Internet Dermatology Society was at the forefront of the Internet frenzy and one of the first groups to recognize and anticipate the power of the Internet.

Since its founding, the organization has grown to 2000 + physician members from over 102 countries around the world.

The Society's Electronic Textbook of Dermatology was the first Internet-based dermatology resource and as such it has gained great recognition as an authoritative resource for dermatology worldwide. Today it is one of the most respected dermatological resources in the world and has in excess of 12,000 unique visitors each week. Over 700,000 visitors gained useful information from it in 2001.

The organization is now planning its 8th Annual Scientific and Technology Meeting to be held in conjunction with the American Academy of Dermatology in San Francisco California. These well-attended meetings have provided an insight into the most advanced uses of technology to advance the science of dermatology for the dermatologists who seek to apply technology to their practice.
