About us

We are the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD), the professional membership body for dermatologists in the UK and abroad. Founded in 1920, the BAD is a registered charity representing over 2400 members, dedicated to medical education, professional practice and standards, and research in dermatology.

The mission of the BAD is to champion dermatology in the UK for the public benefit. This means publishing dermatology research, holding dermatology events and conferences, promoting innovation in dermatology care, and engaging with decision-makers and stakeholders within the dermatology community and wider health system.

The BAD is led by the Officers and Executive Committee of the BAD, the trustees of the organisation, who are elected by the membership. The senior management team and professional staff of the BAD, supported by the Officers, carry out the day-to-day business of the organisation.

For more information about the aims and objectives of the BAD, you can read our constitution.
