Dear Doctors, Colleagues and our partners in RCD,
Once again we celebrate another milestone in the history of our regional dermatology fraternity.
For the first time this RCD, the 21st RCD will be held in Vietnam to celebrate the entry of the Vietnamese Society of Dermatology and Venereology (VSDV) into the League of Asean Dermatological Societies (LADS). This important event follows the inauguration of the AADV in Hanoi in 2009.
On behalf of the Council of the LADS and the Board of the AADV, I would like to urge all aspiring dermatologists, trainees and registrars to take advantage of this special opportunity to attend the many teaching courses and workshops that the 21st RCD has to offer. You will learn much from the many eminent teachers in dermatopathology, dermatologic surgery, allergy and contact dermatitis, clinical dermatology and dermatologic therapy.
I note that the Professor Tran Hau Khang, President of the VSDV, heading a dedicated Organising Committee, is committed to bring to the 21st RCD a pristine international and regional faculty of world-renowned experts. I am told that many new shooting stars as well as icons in dermatology will be attending. The scientific program that is being developed will be in keeping with the high standards set by previous RCDs. The sharing of information and expertise opportunity generated by this meeting will be relevant to your daily dermatology practice. The close fellowship of dermatologists of our region that had been the hallmark will again be seen in the Congress social program.
I also note that our biomedical partners and supporters who have travelled with us through the past 40 years of the RCDs are again present in force.
With best wishes.
Dr Steven K W Chow
