AACD – Association of Academic Dermatology – TheAACD.org

Library ​



Held several times per year (see dates below), Association of Academic Cosmetic Dermatology webinars are a place for dermatology faculty and residents to get together and engage in productive discussion regarding “hot topics” in cosmetic and laser dermatology, with a particular focus on how these topics are relevant to the academic setting. 

The format is an interactive Zoom meeting in which the audience is welcome to turn on their camera and engage and network with speakers. Speakers are AACD faculty, who are cosmetic dermatology faculty at dermatology residency programs around the US. 

We invite all dermatologists and dermatology residents to attend, as well as any medical students and other non-dermatology residents who are interested.
