The purpose of the SPD Nancy Esterly Pediatric Dermatology Visiting Lectureship is to encourage dermatology residency programs 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.
ACGME-approved dermatology residency programs in the U.S. or programs accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada are eligible to submit applications for this program.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Applications will be forwarded to all eligible U.S. and Canadian dermatology residency programs in mid-October; the next deadline for submission will be May 1, 2023. The successful applicant program(s) may schedule the visit for any time during the calendar year 2023 or early 2024.
NUMBER OF VISITING LECTURESHIPS
Three Visiting Lectureships are now awarded annually with a minimum of one visit to a HBCU or a dermatology residency program with a high proportion of Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM) residents. The application form also lists options for a virtual or onsite visit.
HOW ARE RECIPIENT PROGRAMS SELECTED?
The Awards Committee will review all applications. Awarded lectureships will be selected based on the need of the program and those would most benefit from the visit.
