AACD – Association of Academic Dermatology – TheAACD.org

Corporate Partnership

Partner with the AACD to engage with dermatologists across all career stages – residents, early-career and mid-career faculty, and highly experienced senior faculty.

The AACD, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, is the leading professional society for academic cosmetic dermatology faculty.  Our members are responsible for training dermatology residents in cosmetic and laser dermatology at residency programs across the US.  Currently, we have over 130 members who teach approximately 1,000 dermatology residents across 88 unique residency programs (60% of all US dermatology residency programs).  The AACD aims to support these faculty in providing educational opportunities to residents, in providing excellent patient care at academic institutions, and in their own professional development.  

The mission of the AACD Industry Relations Committee is to facilitate relationships between industry leaders, AACD members, and the residents they train.  Partnering with the AACD is an opportunity to engage with dermatologists at all stages of their career development – from residents in training, to early-career and mid-career faculty, and to highly experienced senior faculty.

  • Attendance at the AACD Annual Meeting, which includes networking with both cosmetic dermatology faculty and dermatology residents
