Dermatologist Rashmi Sarkar, M.D., doesn't see the more than 7,000 miles separating her home country from the United States as a networking obstacle. In fact, she has taken a special interest in bringing the worlds of dermatology in India and America together.

Dr. Sarkar, associate professor in dermatology, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, says it was her research in melasma that first got the attention of the 2006 American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting. Since then, she has not only presented research at major dermatology meetings, but has also built bridges between dermatologists in India and those globally.


Dr. Sarkar encourages collaboration and networking among dermatologists in India and those in other parts of the world — especially the United States. To do that, she has taken on roles in professional organizations, domestically and internationally.

Earlier this year, colleagues elected Dr. Sarkar to the seven-member executive committee of the Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists (IADVL).

Dr. Sarkar is also the international representative on the Women's Dermatologic Society's (WDS) board of directors, and she is currently the co-chair of the WDS's International Affairs Committee.

Late last year, Dr. Sarkar brought the organizations together by hosting a WDS networking reception and retreat at the IADVL's annual conference in New Delhi. She has since organized similar meetings at three national dermatology conferences (Dermacons). WDS members have attended, including the organization's president, Janet Hickman, M.D.

It was during the WDS's board of directors meeting at the annual AAD meeting in March that it was announced Dr. Sarkar had spearheaded a new joint Women's Dermatologic Society-Indian Women's Dermatologic Society, the bylaws of which were voted and approved by WDS members that day.

One of Dr. Sarkar's main goals has been to encourage female dermatology colleagues in India to network internationally. So far, membership in the Indian Women's Dermatologic Society has gone from seven in early 2010 to more than 30 in May 2012.
