About International Dermoscopy Society

Our membership is worldwide and currently more than 150 countries are represented.


Individuals may join by direct application for a free IDS membership.


Our organization conducts a world congress every 3 years and sister society meetings every year during the AAD congress in USA and the EADV congress in Europe.


The IDS was founded in 2003 by H. Peter Soyer, Rainer Hofmann-Wellenhof and Giuseppe Argenziano to promote clinical research in dermoscopy and to represent a clinically oriented international organization with a thrust towards helping and improving education in dermoscopy.
