Take a look at our Psoriasis Academy and learn more about:

  • The mission of the Psoriasis Academy as a platform for sharing clinical experience
  • Expert opinions on psoriasis management and treatment
  • The goals of the Academy, including sharing the latest hot topics and developments

Mission statement

The Psoriasis Academy draws on the experience of practicing dermatologists, general practitioners (GPs), and allied healthcare professionals (HCPs) around the world. It is a central repository for specialists who know the current market, but want to remain informed on the latest treatment research and development. The Psoriasis Academy aims to serve as a platform for HCPs to share clinical experiences.

Psoriasis is a debilitating, chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease, with an evolving treatment landscape that includes topical therapy, phototherapy, and systemic drugs1.

The Psoriasis Academy was created because we know that busy HCPs need to access and share important information on all aspects of the disease and its management quickly and easily.

What we are striving for

The Psoriasis Academy is an online educational resource that has been created to help HCPs quickly learn the latest hot topics and developments in the field, and to help them navigate the rapidly evolving treatment landscape for patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis.
