Educational Exchange and Mentorship

Some of the most effective learning occurs when skills and experiences are shared among experts and rising dermatologic surgeons. The enhanced clinical expertise, practice management knowledge and leadership skills benefits both mentors and mentees by fostering professional relationships and perpetuating the cycle of knowledge to advance the specialty of dermatologic surgery.

Future Leaders Network

This invitation-only program for mentors and young leaders is invaluable in fostering leadership skills. Participants develop essential skills that increase confidence and enable higher levels of engagement in, and contribution to, the specialty of dermatologic surgery.

Resident Preceptorship Program

Third-year residents may expand their clinical and surgical expertise by participating in a perceptorship for one-on-one learning. The week-long visit to an established dermatologic surgery practice provides a unique opportunity to learn new techniques and perspectives, see a successful practice in action and develop valuable career networks.

Early-Career Preceptorship Program

ASDS member young dermatologists (no more than 10 years post-residency) have the opportunity to gain key clinical and practice insights during a short practice visit with an experienced dermatologic surgeon.

Visiting Professors Program

This program enhances the educational experience of dermatology residents in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico at no cost to the residency program. Dermatology experts visit residency programs for one to three days (per visit) to share their clinical expertise, personal insights and perspectives in dermatologic surgery, practice management and patient care.

International Educational Exchange Program

To encourage the exchange of dermatologic surgery expertise across the globe, ASDS and ISDS members can participate in the International Educational Exchange Program. Through the International Traveling Mentorship program, ASDS members can visit an institution in another country or serve as U.S. host to a fellow international dermatologic surgeon. The International Preceptorship Program connects one international dermatologic surgeon per year with a preceptor in the United States. Established through the Lawrence Field, MD, International Dermatologic Surgery Educational Exchange Fund.  

Partners in Professional Development

This program matches young dermatologic surgeons with seasoned ASDS members who are interested in sharing their expertise and advice about the profession.
