The Missouri Dermatological Society was established in 1971 and currently has a membership of over 100 physicians throughout the State.

The MDS is a membership organization of dermatologists dedicated to quality, safety, and awareness in the delivery of dermatologic care. It is committed to promoting key advocacy initiatives to establish meaningful and timely policy.

The Society provides educational opportunities for its members and hosts an annual meeting each fall.

The Society cares about the dermatologic health of Missourians. To this end, the Society monitors and works to positively influence legislation that affects the health of all residents. The society holds a lobby day and a “healthy skin day” in Jefferson City in addition to using a strategic plan to help legislators understand the importance of dermatology.
