Choose from Two Tracks to Enhance Your Leadership Skills

  • ASDS FLN Program: Implement team projects that support the priorities of ASDS, ASDSA or the Dermatologic Surgery community at-large.
  • ASDSA FLN Program: Expand your knowledge about the policymaking process, ASDSA priorities, and how to have meaningful influence on the legislative and regulatory process. The Advocacy FLN team will also take on a project, as a team, that advances ASDSA Advocacy goals.

Help make a difference. Volunteer to be a mentor!

It only takes one person to make a difference. As a volunteer mentor, you have an excellent opportunity not only to apply and enhance your own leadership skills, but also to develop new friendships and enhance your understanding of ASDS and the work it does. You will share your experiences, interests, and knowledge as you see your mentee grow and meet the challenges of creating and producing a project that expresses his or her talent to be a future leader of ASDS.
