About Noah

Get to Know Us

The Noah Worcester Dermatological Society (Noah) is a small, unique organization comprised of the most respected and visible thought leaders in dermatology. Since our first Annual Meeting in 1958, Noah has offered our members and industry benefactors exceptional educational programming and the opportunity for physicians to earn continuing medical education (CME) credit. But that's not what makes our Society special. For our members and industry friends, Noah is a family, and the intimate, collegial atmosphere of our Society is unlike that of any other dermatologic group.


The objective of the Society is to nurture a small national dermatological organization characterized by scientific programs of high caliber and close association among its members. The membership is selectively limited to assure intimacy and the high academic standards of the scientific program.


  • Education: Provide members with cutting-edge medical education and opportunities to earn CME credit.
  • Leadership & Mentorship: Noah's relatively small, close-knit society provides an excellent platform for younger dermatologists to interact with and learn from more experienced, senior colleagues.
  • Philanthropy: In its 62-year history, Noah has provided grants to most leading medical schools and departments of dermatology to further education and fund skin disease research. The Society also regularly contributes to the Dermatology Foundation, Camp Discovery, and other charitable organizations.
