We are so excited to announce our return to Bangkok, Thailand for our 11th World Congress of the Dermatology, Aesthetics, and Surgery International League. DASIL has enjoyed its varied locations around the globe as we bring our dermatology and cosmetic experts to locations where we can live up to our mission of Mentors Teaching Mentors.
Bangkok, Thailand is a magical place, with all of its beauty, all of its history and culture, and wonderful experiences for all of us to enjoy. DASIL Bangkok 2023 will be held from October 25-27, 2023 and we plan three full days of learning and educational opportunities that are not to be missed. Living up to our name, DASIL will educate you on everything that is new and exciting in medical dermatology, aesthetics, and in surgical techniques that will enhance your clinical abilities. So mark your calendars now – this is an event that you do not want to miss.
Dr. Atchima Suwanchinda and her remarkable colleagues are preparing for our visit to Bangkok and have been preparing so we may showcase Bangkok and dermatology/aesthetics to the world. Our DASIL members, faculty, and guests will surely find something exciting with each course and each workshop we have planned. We will also be hosting a Cadaver/Anatomy Workshop with our award winning faculty – again, something that is not to be missed.
DASIL is a true non-profit international dermatology and dermatological society. We pride ourselves in the openness of the group, the transparency of our activities, and to abide by our mission of Mentors Teaching Mentors – as we ensure that dermatology and dermatologic surgery is practiced and taught at the highest of levels. Our initiatives, set out by our members, continue to inspire and bring new members into the organization – which is what teaching and education is all about. We encourage everyone to join DASIL – and to become part of the best dermatology group in the world.
So plan on attending DASIL Bangkok 2023 – we look forward to welcoming the world to this amazing city, to this amazing congress, and to reunite once again with our friends and colleagues from around the globe.

DASIL WORLD CONGRESS PRESIDENT
Dear friends and colleagues,
As DASIL president I’m extremely happy and honored to welcome you to one of the most active international societies – The Dermatology, Aesthetics, and Surgery International League.
Although I had to wait for two extra years as DASIL President Elect to start my presidency as we all had to interrupt our live activities and meetings for almost three years due to the Covid pandemic, it turns out we all have benefited from personal, professional, and organizing challenges and rich learning experience during this difficult period.
Yes, I’ve missed traveling, visiting different parts of the world, meeting my friends and colleagues from all over the world, but due to being “caught” at home I had a chance to bring my son almost every morning into the school! Something I wouldn’t even have imagined before.
I’ve always used video calls to keep in touch with my family during my travel, but using FaceTime, Skype, Zoom and the likes to organize meetings and conferences with a few thousands of participants and provide most recent scientific developments and even virtual “hands-on trainings” – who would even dreamed about that three years ago?
The challenge for the next years – not only for DASIL as a scientific society, but for our entire world – will be how to bring the best from both worlds together.
As a non-profit society we are glad to be able to provide knowledge and support for doctors from all over the world and at different stages of their professional career.
We are proud to have specially dedicated trainings and support programs for doctors from developing countries – those young colleague, who mostly do not have a chance or financial means to travel to international meetings.
We at DASIL offer different opportunities for these young, talented, ambitious colleagues – traveling grants, free registration, full congress packages, and chances to present a poster or give a talk on a podium at our annual meetings, as well as participate in our virtual webinars and trainings without any need of traveling and loosing valuable time with their own patients.
As DASIL members you not only have additional free access to different scientific journals like “Dermatologic Surgery”, but due to the particular character of an international non-profit scientific society to meet and chat with world leading expert in a family gathering like atmosphere.
Something that in particular at the beginning of my career was the most fascinating aspect for me – to meet and even become friends with people who have invented Moh surgery, botulinum toxin use for aesthetics, fractional lasers and other big inventions in the field of medical dermatology, aesthetics, and surgery – as a former war refugee from Bosnia. And now, I myself am a President of one of the most active international interdisciplinary societies – Dermatology, Aesthetics, and Surgery International League.
My message for all my colleagues – young or old, less or more experienced, from poor or rich countries – don’t miss the opportunity to join us as DASIL member, chat with us through digital media, or let us all meet together in Bangkok for our next DASIL Annual World Congress, October 25-27, 2023!
Maybe one day you will write these lines as a new president of this wonderful society.
