The organization holds meetings twice a year to educate physicians about advances in pediatric dermatology, help them support children with dermatological diseases and improve the care of these children.

What’s New

  • "Patient Perspectives" Handouts Available

    SPD has initiated work on a series of handouts, aimed at providing reliable information for pediatric dermatologists, dermatologists, pediatricians, family practitioners and internists to use and shared directly with patients and their families.   Several are already available, including Acne, Infantile Hemangiomas and Moles.    

  • SPD Collecting Data on Pedi Derm Compensation & Productivity Patterns

    The SPD's Practice Management Committee is currently preparing a survey to gather usable data on our specialty’s compensation and productivity patterns.  Initial area of focus will be compensation (salary, production, bonuses, other), work volume (patients seen per unit of time, total patients), and productivity (RVUs, total revenue billed, total collections). The survey results will provide members with valuable insight into practice variables impacting compensation and productivity, empowering them to become more financially savvy in their own practices. 

  • Research Grant Deadline: May 1, 2015

    The SPD will provide five research grants for projects aimed at advancing the field of pediatric dermatology in 2015.   One (1) William Weston Research Award will be given (max funding $15,000) supporting scholarly clinical or basic research.  Four Pilot Project Awards will be available (funding up to $7,500) supporting the initiation of studies important to Pediatric Dermatology.   Application deadline is May 1, 2015.
