The purpose of the SPD Nancy Esterly Pediatric Dermatology Visiting Lectureship is to encourage those dermatology residency programs without access to an expert in pediatric dermatology to benefit from a two-day visit from a pediatric dermatologist. The visiting lecturer would spend two days at the host institution conducting lectures, seminars, or rounds with dermatology residents, medical students, and faculty.
