MEIDAM is currently in its 8th edition of the annual conference & exhibition being hosted in Dubai, during the month of September.

Under the leadership of the steering committee led by President Dr. Khaled Al Nuaimi and Vice President Dr. Zuhair Al Fardan from the UAE, the Secretary-General Dr, Saad AlSogair and honorary President Dr. Sami Al Sogair from Saudi Arabia, the conference has grown into a gathering which is being attended by a large group of Dermatology, Aesthetics and Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery associations from all across the world including Russia, New Zealand, Chile, United States, just to mention a few to highlight the expansive reach. Over the years, it has also become a hub for dermatologists to socially meet and exchange the latest updates. It is also a conference where most of the dermatology societies of the Middle East Region gather to collaborate scientifically.
The MEIDAM Association is a dynamic international, non-profit organization, part of the Dubai Association Centre, which is a subsidy of the Dubai Chamber that comes under the Dubai Government, founded in the year 2021. The dermatology society leaders from the Middle East region formed a committee with a mission to foster scientific and clinical collaborations in dermatology and aesthetic medicine and to promote evidence-based practices that ensure optimal patient care. MEIDAM supports initiatives that impact the communities we serve and provides a platform for clinicians and scientists to share knowledge, exchange ideas, and start collaborative projects that can enhance the standards of dermatologic and aesthetic care within the region and beyond. We are committed to increasing diversity and achieving, equity in these fields of medicine. Our main tools to accomplish this mission, are education, advocacy, and mentorship.
MEIDAM aims to unite leading academic scientists, researchers, clinicians, and scholars to exchange and share their expertise on all aspects of Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine. MEIDAM also partnered with WHO as our Global Health Leader through which the latest cases of dermatology concerns are brought to life by the Regional WHO representatives. MEIDAM also has pledged support for the UNHCR in collaboration as our Global Humanitarian Partner. MEIDAM aims to bridge the gap of technological advances in education between the East and the West, to bring the global platform into the region, and to provide a platform for the younger generation of dermatologists through this vision.
