Upon completion, attendees will earn credit for 35 of the 100 self-assessment questions they much complete every three (3) years in MOC.

Leadership Forum
Aimed to foster leadership skills for early/mid career pediatric dermatologists, this year’s SPD Leadership Forum will offer focused sessions to enhance your career in pediatric dermatology. These will include a personalized evaluation to determine your motivations, which will emphasize harnessing your strengths. In addition there will be organized small group networking with experienced SPD leaders and mentors, and a discussion of how to continue to maintain a work-life balance and prevent burnout. Please note, the Leadership Forum is a longer session. It will begin at 1:15 pm and end at 5:30 pm. It is limited to 40 participants.

Lasers in Pediatric Dermatology
Kristen Kelly, MD, University of California Irvine Medical School & Andrew Krakowski, St. Luke's University Health Network
The format for this focus workshop course will include didactic case-based lectures given by an expert panel with frank conversation with attendees. The course is open to all designated participants that may be interested in the use of laser and energy devices as they specifically relate to children’s health. Prior knowledge of lasers and their use in medicine and surgery may be helpful; however, the material presented within the workshop will be directed at all knowledge levels, including those attendees choosing to learn about pediatric laser medicine for the first time.

The Road Less Traveled: A Breakout Session on Different Career Options in Pediatric Dermatology
Join us for a diverse panel of pediatric dermatologists to hear about different career options in our field. You will be given the opportunity to hear from academic, private practice, clinical researchers, administrators, and others so that you can gain perspective of the breadth of career options as a pediatric dermatologist. The moderator will facilitate questions to the panel but this is also designed to be an informal session where the audience can ask questions. Whether just starting your career as a pediatric dermatologist or considering a mid-career change, this session is for you!
