The Mission of the Dermatology, Aesthetics, and Surgery International League (DASIL) is to create a global community for the open exchange of knowledge and innovation by physicians specializing in Dermatologic and Aesthetic Surgery. Through our ongoing educational activities and by establishing a higher standard of care, people living around the world will benefit from safer, more effective dermatologic and aesthetics treatments.
DASIL follows the legacy and teaching initiatives of the late professor and father of dermatologic surgery, Dr. Lawrence Fields – a pioneering dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon who taught tirelessly all across the globe.
Dr. Fields' efforts brought forward dermatology and dermatologic surgery to many of us, and his dreams and desires are one of the main reasons DASIL exists today.
For those of us who had the privilege of learning from him, we are better clinicians as a result. For those who never had the opportunity to work under Dr. Fields, we are here to continue his dreams and to teach and mentor all dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons. DASIL will be forever grateful to Dr. Fields and all of his contributions to our specialty.
DASIL will accomplish its mission through a series of grand strategies which will include, but not be limited to, the following:
