The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) is the only national organization in the United States specifically dedicated to the field of Pediatric Dermatology.
The Society's objective is to promote, develop and advance education, research and care of skin disease in all pediatric age groups. The organization holds meetings twice a year to educate physicians about advances in pediatric dermatology, help them support children with dermatological diseases and improve the care of these children.
This site provides information for the purpose of developing and advancing education, research and care of skin disease in all pediatric age groups.
The SPD's Mentorship Award exists to establish a formal mentorship program in Pediatric Dermatology, promote career development within the field, and cultivate relationships between established pediatric dermatologists and those in training. New in 2018, the SPD has created one Mentorship Award specfically for a medical student. Applications are due May 1, 2018.
