TRAVEL AWARDS

Travel awards are available on a competitive basis to fellows, residents, and medical students who are SPD members and present cases (Cases of the Year) or posters at the SPD Annual Meeting. This is an effort to encourage participation among trainees interested in pediatric dermatology and helps provide recognition for exceptional work as well as financial assistance to attend the meeting. There will be two $1,000 awards available for the SPD 2018 Annual Meeting. Members who qualify will apply through the SPD website at the time of submission of cases and posters. The SPD Awards and Goals Committee will evaluate the quality of the case/poster, focusing on whether it presents “new” information, is relevant to care of children with skin diseases, quality of data, and approved consent process.

The AAP Section on Dermatology will offer one $1,000 Travel Award, open to residents or fellows who present cases or posters at the Annual Meeting. Preference will be given to abstracts that focus on pediatric dermatology education, workforce, Medical Home and collaborating with pediatrician partners. Members can apply for this award at the time of case or abstract submission.
