DIG strives to educate the BUSM community about the field of dermatology and to increase medical student exposure to the practice of derm as well as the diverse sub-specialities that exist within the field. We plan to host events featuring prominent members of the derm community speaking on their research or academic careers. The group will also find opportunities for students to involve themselves with the specialty.

1) To increase knowledge and awareness of the field of dermatology

2) To provide information regarding programs and careers in dermatology

3) To promote community service in dermatology

4) To promote primary prevention and education about dermatology in the surrounding community
