University of Birmingham Medical Society - listen learn and enjoy


DermSoc is a society which engages students in dermatology teaching and awareness. We welcome all students, whether you wish to pursue a career in dermatology or are keen to learn more in preparation for exams. We host many events to support students’ learning, this includes educational lecture series and a large OSCE preparation evening, all taught by experienced Dermatology Registrars. This year we are re-launching journal club, which will be held monthly via zoom and led by dermatology trainees!

Alongside teaching at the medical school, we also attend national conferences, including the annual DermSchool and the UK National DermSoc Day. We are supported by the British Association of Dermatologists and compete against other dermatology societies in ‘Battle of the DermSocs’, where we aim to have the best social media presence and raise as much money as possible for the British Skin Foundation.

Our fundraising events include Wellness evenings, team quiz nights and sponsored runs. We hold inspiring careers talks about life as a dermatologist and use our social media platforms to share interesting clinical cases and promote skin/ body positivity.

This year, we are working closely with the charity Skcin, which is a national chairty which work to promote sun safety and raise awareness for skin cancers.

Freshers!! We hope to involve as many first-year students as possible in DermSoc, so if you are interested in learning more about the skin, want to promote body positivity or help to fundraise for a fantastic cause, we recommend signing up at Freshers Fair to become a member of DermSoc.
