The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) is the only national organization in the United States specifically dedicated to the field of Pediatric Dermatology.
The Society's objective is to promote, develop, and advance education, research, and care of skin disease in all pediatric age groups. The organization holds meetings twice a year to educate physicians about advances in pediatric dermatology, help them support children with dermatological diseases, and improve their care.
Over the past decade, the field has recognized the unique and critical role dermatologists play in hospitalized patient care. Now, our mission is to provide a similar community for peds derms within the Pediatric Dermatology Inpatient SIG. Click the link above to learn more about joining.
Apply for all awards by May 1, 2020! One Resident/Fellow Research Award recipient will have their paper on clinical or laboratory research relating to pediatric dermatology chosen for presentation at the society's 2020 Annual Meeting. SPD's Mentorship Awards program seeks to promote career development and cultivate mentorships between established pediatric dermatologists and residents/fellows/junior faculty. The SPD also offers a Medical Student Mentorship Award.
