The visit provides a unique opportunity to learn new techniques and perspectives, see a successful practice in action, and develop valuable career networks.

The goals of the Preceptorship Program are to:

Provide a venue for ASDS members to expand their skills and knowledge in a particular technique or surgical procedure.Enhance and complement the surgical skills of young dermatologists in various surgical procedures, especially those not predominantly emphasized in residency or fellowship programs.Provide ASDS members, who serve as preceptors, the opportunity to raise the level of dermatologic surgery through mentoring.  

ASDS preceptorships typically provide the experience of an observership. The availability of hands-on experience depends upon local practice or institutional requirements for licensure and insurance coverage. Applicants are encouraged to seek information defining the nature of each preceptor’s training program.
