Spend a long weekend in Seattle this summer for an energizing learning experience at the 2024 AAD Innovation Academy!

Our topically focused sessions are organized to give you a seamless and quality educational experience. Take a look at how the program is unique to Innovation Academy by checking out the schedule below.

Thursday, August 1

The meeting kicks off in the afternoon with three different 4-hour sessions.

Choose from one or split your time between:

  • Branding and the Business of Dermatology

  • Practice Management Course

  • The Future of Dermatology

End the day with our keynote speaker, followed by a Welcome Reception with food, cocktails, entertainment, and designated time to mingle with colleagues and explore exhibits.

Friday, August 2 - Sunday, August 4

Start your mornings with a one-hour sunrise session, beginning at 7:30 a.m., and continue the day with parallel sessions covering the latest and greatest in a single topic area. Don’t miss Friday’s Derm Tank session, where a new group of contestants will compete, you’ll hear from our past winners, and snacks and drinks will be served.

You Asked, We Listened!
Based on attendee feedback, this year’s program was developed with a limited number of concurrent sessions, so you can easily attend what’s important to you without experiencing FOMO (fear of missing out)!
