Community Engagement


The Community Engagement Advisory Committee has been established to provide strategic advice and support to the Board of Directors on dermatological issues relevant to the community, including consumer health care needs and priorities, the impact of College’s educational programs and the delivery of dermatological services.

The primary purpose of the Community Engagement Advisory Committee is to:

  • Collaborate with the Board to improve College governance by bringing a community perspective.
  • Collaborate with College’s educational leaders to promote understanding of dermatological health care needs and community perspectives of care so that College’s educational programs for Trainees, Fellows and IMGs reflect and include these perspectives.
  • Co-design community engagement activities and strengthen collaborations for the mutual benefit of the skin health of communities and for College cultural and community sensitivity.
