What is something unique about your society?

IMCAS has 20 years’ experience in organizing congresses. We drew on this experience when creating the first e-learning platform dedicated to aesthetics and dermatology. We responded to a need from our attendees; as they could not attend the sessions in eight rooms. In parallel, they needed another way to access all of the sessions on offer.

Thanks to our active community of worldwide experts, IMCAS Academy’s platform is now spreading its knowledge and expertise all over the world.
