The Australasian Dermatopathology Society (ADS)

is a professional collective of Specialist Dermatologists and Pathologists who are dedicated to improving our understanding of the pathology of cutaneous disease. As of January 2014, there were a total of nearly 200 members of the ADS. The majority of our members are based in Australia and New Zealand, but we also have members based in North America, Europe and Asia. We welcome applications from appropriately qualified colleagues and trainees from around the world to join us.


The Australasian Society of Dermatopathology holds an annual meeting in Australia and New Zealand. This is run over three days, and is rotated between the main cities in each state and NZ. The society also supports other Dermatopathology forums and meetings on request.

Membership of the Society, in accordance with our Constitution, is open to all fellows of The Australasian College of Dermatologists and The Royal College of Pathologists of Australia and such other medical practitioners as the Committee may from time to time determine.

Each month the Australasian Society of Dermatopathology produces an education case. These provide the opportunity to look at static and interactive images, followed by a case discussion. If you have an interesting case to submit or would like to join the mailing list, please contact Ben Tallon the ADS Education Officer via the contacts page.
