Partners in Professional Development


Partners in Professional Development



The Partners in Professional Development program is designed to assist young dermatologic surgeons with the advice and insights they need to build a successful career and/or practice.

The Partners in Professional Development program will serve as a mentorship in practice management and related career-building activities. The goal of the program is to foster professional development for young dermatologic surgeons who are in the first five years of their career.

Mentees will be paired with a mentor for one-year if desired, and mentors may choose to work with a mentee within or beyond their geographic area. Mentors and mentees are encouraged to discuss relevant topics at least quarterly. Areas for mentorship include practice management, public education, professional society leadership and public speaking.

The idea for the Professional Development Program was conceived as a joint effort between mentor Adam M. Rotunda, MD, and mentee Jeremy Kampp, MD. Their project is one of six pilot projects of the 2010-2011 ASDS Future Leaders Network -- a one-year program geared to improving leadership skills in young physicians through mentorship, leadership training and project guidance. 


Mentors and mentees must be an ASDS Fellow in good standing and in good standing with their state, local or provincial professional licensing body. The program is limited to mentees who are less than five years post-residency and mentors who have been out of training for at least 10 years.


The duration of the program is for one-year. The first year of the program began July 15, 2013 and will end July 15, 2014.
