The board of directors of the Idaho Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants is excited to welcome you to our website. We were organized in the spring of 2009. Our hope is to establish a site where all who are interested in dermatology can find support, both educationally and professionally. It is our hope to provide a forum to share ideas and medical experiences, as well as promote the profession of both physician assistant and dermatology. If you have an interesting dermatology case that you would be willing to share, or are aware of a job opportunity, please email the information to one of the board members for placement on the website.

We welcome your suggestions as well as invite you to join our organization and help us in our mission to strengthen this wonderful profession in the state of Idaho.
