Assalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Greeting of healthy and prosperous to all of us.
 
The 4th Cosmetic Dermatology Inquiring Conference (COSMIC) is one of the routine activities organized by the Indonesian Study Group of Cosmetic Dermatology (Kelompok Studi Dermatologi Kosmetik Indonesia, or KSDKI). This year, the event is conducted in collaboration with the Indonesian Dermatology Association (Perhimpunan Dokter Spesialis Kulit dan Kelamin Indonesia or PERDOSKI) Branch of Padang and the Dermatology and Venereology Department of Dr. M. Djamil Central General Hospital/Faculty of Medicine, Andalas University. The theme for the 4th COSMIC is “Natural Cosmetic Secrets: Sustainable Traditions and Modern Innovations.”
Looking ahead, the challenges of globalization and increased international competitiveness are evident. With the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (MEA), the flow of goods, capital, and manpower has intensified, necessitating specific strategies to enhance the competitiveness of Dermatology and Venereology Specialists (SpDV) at both regional and international levels. As cosmetic dermatology knowledge continues to advance rapidly, PERDOSKI persistently strives to accommodate the competence improvement of Dermatology and Venereology Specialists in the field of cosmetic dermatology. This effort aims to minimize knowledge gaps and competency gaps among peers.
The 4th COSMIC event will take place offline or face-to-face, featuring experts from both domestic and international who will share the latest developments and discoveries in the field of cosmetic dermatology.
In conclusion, I extend my gratitude for the hard work of all members and collaborative partners in preparing this significant event. I look forward to meeting everyone at the 4th COSMIC event in the city of Padang.
 
Wassalamu’alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
