From residency to retirement, you can rely on us for premier educational opportunities, as a hub for innovation in patient care, and for the latest information impacting the specialty.

CME

Created by dermatologists for dermatologists, our educational resources help you stay up to date on the latest treatments and procedures while furthering your professional development.

The educational offerings included with your membership can earn you more than 60 CME credits annually. These offerings include the Question of the Week, JAAD quizzes, and more. Learn more about how to earn free CME via JAAD quizzes.


Advocacy

We advocate for dermatology, making sure your unique expertise is fairly valued by payers and understood by your colleagues in the house of medicine and offering you opportunities to make your voice heard.

In 2021 we prevented dangerous expansions of non-physician scope of practice in several states and averted a 2% cut to Medicare payments through the end of the year.

Meetings

We offer a variety of opportunities to share your knowledge and ideas, network with leaders in specialty care, and discover the latest enhancements in patient care.

In 2022, we returned to holding live events, with a phenomenal annual meeting in Boston and our first Innovation Academy in Vancouver over the summer. Join us in New Orleans for the 2023 Annual Meeting!

Practice management

You’re there for your patients; we’re here for you with programs and resources to help you achieve excellence in patient care by improving access and growing innovation.

On Jan. 1, 2021, the AMA rolled out coding updates that change how you document and code many patient encounters. The AAD continues to develop detailed guidance addressing member questions about how to use the new coding guidelines in practice.

Educating the public

The AAD recently launched a brand new, robust public awareness program, called Your Dermatologist Knows, dedicated to making sure that the public understands that board-certified dermatologists are the leading experts in conditions affecting skin, hair, and nails. You can learn more about the strategy and see examples of content at the Your Dermatologist Knows member hub.

These are just a few examples of the impact being an AAD member can have on you and your career in dermatology. Check out the latest issue of the Academy’s Impact Report to learn more.
