Ladies and Gentlemen,



Welcome to Gdańsk - the city of Freedom and Solidarity which has served as an important cultural centre of a southern Baltic shore for over a thousand years.

The origins of Gdańsk reach back to the 980. The history of a modern medicine had begun there in 1558 when Atheneum Gedanense was established with the independent Cathedral of Medicine and Anatomy. In 1612 was founded Collegium Medicum which became the first Medical Association in Poland. Among its major functions was a defence of doctors' interests and further education, prevention of ongoing humbug medical practices, arbitration in medical malpractice cases, consulting, studies of medicinal products, inspection of pharmacies and imposing fines. Due to the frequent financial conflicts with the City Council, unfortunately, the Association has been closed down in 1636.

In 1613 Joachim Oelhesius, a professor of the Atheneum, has conducted the first public post-mortem examination of a human corpse in Central Europe. In 1722 another professor Adam Kulmus has published a handbook of anatomy atlas titled Tabulae Anatomicae which was translated into 7 languages (including Japanese).

On the 17th of October 1912, a new public clinic of obstetrics and gynaecology (Hebammen-Lehranstalt) on Kliniczna street in Wrzeszcz district was opened. The clinic is operating up to this day and currently also the Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology of the Medical University of Gdańsk is located there.

On the 19th of April, a complex of a new public hospital of 818 beds capacity has been commissioned by Dębinki street, where in 1935 Akademia Medycyny Praktycznej, later Medizinische Akademie in Danzig, was founded. The activity of the Academia terminated with the entrance of the Russian Army to Gdańsk in 1945. Weeks of military actions ruined the city, resulting in chaos and epidemics of typhoid fever, spotted fever, gonorrhoea and syphilis. Such circumstances induced to the establishment of a new medical academy: Akademia Lekarska in Gdańsk.

In 1945 in July Klinika Chorób Skórnych i Wenerycznych capacitating 100 beds started operating under the management of professor Tadeusz Pawlak from Vilnius, who was also a promoter of the clinic’s inception. Shortly after, within the clinic emerged an analytical and histopathological lab, radiotherapy ward and science photography lab. Professor Pawlas organised in Gdańsk "Operation W" which substantially inhibited the spread of venereal diseases.

The following principals of our clinic were as follows: prof. Franciszek Miedziński (1953–1981), prof. Henryk Szarmach (1982–1984) and prof. Jadwiga Roszkiewicz (1994–2012). Their exceptional stance, engagement and creative scientific talent have established the Department and Clinic of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology as one of the top third academic units (A category) of the Medical University of Gdańsk - the best medical academy in Poland, accordingly to the 2018 ranking of "Perspektywy," an educational foundation.


Ladies and Gentlemen, we are glad and honoured to welcome you here. We are hoping that the programme of the III Congress of Dermatology, Venerology and Allergology that we proposed will come across your expectations.

Together with the Organisational and Scientific Committees, we wish you fruitful deliberations and an unforgettable stay in Gdańsk - the city of dermatology and allergology!
