ROSEMONT, III (March 24, 2021) — Today, board-certified dermatologist Kenneth J. Tomecki, MD, FAAD, will begin his one-year term as president of the American Academy of Dermatology.
As president, Dr. Tomecki will lead the world’s largest dermatologic society, representing more than 20,000 physicians specializing in the diagnosis and medical, surgical, and cosmetic treatment of skin, hair, and nail conditions. He will also hold the same position for the American Academy of Dermatology Association, a sister organization to the AAD that focuses on government affairs, health policy, and practice information.
“The AAD made great strides during the pandemic to meet members’ unprecedented needs,” Dr. Tomecki says. “I look forward to continuing this work and keeping a pulse on how the pandemic continues to impact our members and the specialty, and the way we practice dermatology. Overall, in addition to paying special attention to member needs, patient care will always be my primary focus.”
Dr. Tomecki earned his medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York, followed by fellowship at National Cancer Institute, NIH in Bethesda, MD before completing his dermatology residency at the SUNY at Buffalo in Buffalo, New York. He is currently a staff physician in the department of dermatology at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.
Dr. Tomecki currently serves the AAD as an editorial board member for the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. Before that, he served as an assistant editor of JAAD and, most recently, as AAD vice president and a member of the board of directors. Dr. Tomecki is former vice president of the International Society of Dermatology and former vice president of the American Dermatological Association.
