The Young Investigators Writing Competition is offered to stimulate young investigators to submit original ideas, research and articles.
The competition is open to ASDS residents, members completing a dermatologic surgery fellowship and members who have completed residency within the past three years. Medical students and those who have not been placed in a residency program do not qualify for this program. Preferential consideration will be given to papers that address Board-directed research topics.
Award winners receive complimentary general registration to the ASDS Annual Meeting and up to $1,000 in travel and lodging reimbursement. Up to three awards will be given each year at the discretion of the judges.
Manuscripts must first be accepted for publication in Dermatologic Surgery before members can submit an application for the Young Investigators Writing Competition. Writing contest winners are not eligible for other ASDS Annual Meeting resident scholarships.
