Special Interest Groups (SIG)

Inpatient SIG


Our mission is to build a community for pediatric dermatologists who deliver consultative services through education, research, and organizational support.


The SIG implemented an investigator group to research knowledge gaps in areas like proper biopsy technique in extremely premature neonates, evaluation and care of patients with severe drug eruptions, and early identification of disseminated infection in the immunocompromised child. SPD will collaborate with the Society for Dermatology Hospitalists on emerging issues like reimbursement for services and incorporating teledermatology into a consultative service.

If you are interested in joining the Inpatient SIG, please email Sarah Cipriano or Kashie Oza. Trainees are welcome!
