The PDS is an organization of humane and service-oriented dermatologists observing the highest ethical professional standards and promoting knowledge through information, dissemination, training and research.

From its establishment in 1952 up to the present, the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) continually strengthens its mandate to be the respected and recognized leader in Dermatology. The PDS aims to be a highly recognized society, locally and globally, striving towards excellence in the attainment of healthy skin for all. The society’s progress is guided by the five pillars of education, research, outreach, engagement and advocacy.

The core advocacy of the PDS is “Skin Health and Skin Safety” which is why the slogan,” PDS DermAuthority” was coined to perfectly define a PDS dermatologist – a properly trained, competent and ethical physician who is a true expert on skin, hair, and nails. Ultimately, the aim of the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) is to be the leading organization that promotes the advancement of dermatology as a medical specialty and the highest standard of skin health care in the Philippines.
