SID Members by Affiliation
The SID has members from several affiliations including academia, government, industry and private practice. Approximately two thirds of our Members work within academia.
Although the SID is based in the United States, our membership is worldwide. Currently, our international membership component consists of over 300 members representing 32 countries. The top five non-U.S. countries of membership origin are Japan, Germany, Korea, United Kingdom, and Canada. Our international members continue to increase each year.
Active membership is open to any scientist whose work has relation to investigative dermatology or cutaneous biology and any physician with an interest in skin diseases or allied subjects. In addition, any individual or group evidencing an interest in investigative dermatology and who does not meet the general requirements may become a sustaining member. Any individual engaged full-time in a training program in dermatology or a basic science related to medicine shall be eligible for resident/post doctoral membership for the period during which he/she remains in that status providing this period does not exceed five years. All active and individual sustaining members may be designated a Patron Member of the Society upon payment of dues as established by the Board of Directors. A list of the Patron Members is published annually in The Journal of Investigative Dermatology.
The SID offers a wide variety of opportunities to get involved. Take a look at an overview here.
