Traditionally, one conference is chosen every year, and all the financial frame is dedicated to support that conference. In this year the DUDG Conference is chosen by the Board, and young dermatologists and residents will be supported to take part in this conference.
Other supports: HDS awards the best dermatological study on the Contest of Scientific Research of Students in every Clinic, every year.
There are also special courses for residents, organised or supported by the HDS.
