International Traveling Mentorship Program

The International Traveling Mentorship Program (ITMP) was established in 2010 through the Lawrence Field, MD, International Dermatologic Surgery Education Exchange Fund. The International Traveling Mentorship Program enhances the exchange of information and body of knowledge of dermatologic surgery between the U.S. and international community of dermatologic surgeons. ASDS allows dermatologic surgeons to visit a host institution in another country – or host a dermatologic surgeon from another country – for a defined period of teaching, surgical demonstration and table-side exchange. 

This program is free-to-join with limited travel reimbursement available through an application process.  


Enhance and complement the surgical skills of dermatologists in various surgical procedures, particularly those not prominently emphasized in residency or fellowship programs.

Provide a venue for dermatologic surgeons to expand and interchange their skills and knowledge in a particular technique or surgical procedure.

Provide dermatologic surgeons the opportunity to raise the international level of dermatologic surgery through mentoring and hosting.
