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.


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 free CME and our new on-demand clinical guidelines courses.


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.

Our top legislative priority this year is fighting to prevent Medicare cuts. Our advocacy efforts are moving the needle on iPLEDGE burdens, recently winning recommendations for reform from an FDA advisory committee. We also helped win a clarification from CMS that reduces burdens around Medicare prior authorization.


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.

Positioning the specialty

The AAD continues to score wins with a 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.
