  • To initiate and conduct research related to the promotion of health and care of individuals with dermatologic conditions.
  • To participate in activities designed to promote the general dermatologic health and well-being of the people of British Columbia so far as circumstances may warrant.
  • To provide leadership in the education and professional development of health care providers.
  • To cooperate with other agencies, including voluntary health agencies, educational institutions and other clinics in the pursuit of these goals and objectives and to assist them in meeting their goals and objectives where possible.
  • To provide an environment in which employees may grow and develop job satisfaction and work safely to achieve the mission of The Skin Care Centre.
