The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery International Preceptorship Program was established in 2011 through the Lawrence Field, MD International Dermatologic Surgery Education Exchange Fund. The primary goal is to enhance the exchange of information and body of knowledge for an international preceptee through a visit to the US.
This program assists international dermatologic surgeons in visiting a Preceptor in the U.S. to expand their knowledge of procedures and advanced techniques not available in their country of origin. This knowledge is shared with colleagues, helping to advance patient care in their home country. Available to ASDS members (and members of other international societies based on work group approval) and third-year residents in a qualified training program. There is one international dermatologist selected annually to participate in this program. Limited funding is available.
