Vital to the future
"The AAD Resident Education Grant helps make sure residents can attend meetings vital to their future. Residents will learn more in five days at the AAD Meeting than they can get from months of seeing patients."

AAD members share why they support the Resident Education Grant
“I encourage all residents to attend the Annual Meeting and take advantage of the educational sessions and the opportunity to meet others – from peers and future colleagues to internationally-recognized experts in dermatology. For many, it is the beginning of a successful career and lifelong relationships that offer personal connections and professional growth.”
─ Orit Markowitz, MD, AAD Fellow since 2008
“Attending my first AAD Annual Meeting was an eye-opening experience. The quality of the educational programs as well the support to foster residents and early career dermatologists aided my decision to pursue a career in academics.”
─ Aaron Mangold, MD, AAD Fellow since 2016
“The Resident Education Grant program helps residents who are actively shaping their future career choices and gives us the opportunity to seek further education and mentorship at the lively annual meeting.”
─ Kate Oberlin, MD, AAD Fellow since 2019
