Case sumission will open in November and close in mid-December. Check back in early fall for exact dates.
Cases of the Year
Cases of the Year includes cases with a known diagnosis, diseases that were difficult to diagnose, or cases presenting management challenges. These cases should have attendant teaching value. Case presentations are four minutes, with an additional two-minute question & answer period. Ten cases will be selected for the Pre-AAD Meeting. CVs and disclosure forms will be required for each author on the case. Case slides must be submitted before the meeting for CME review.
Important Submission Information
One travel award is available on a competitive basis to a fellow, resident, or medical student who is an SPD member and presents a Case of the Year at the SPD Pre-AAD 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. The SPD Awards and Grants 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. One $1,000 award is available to fellows, residents, or medical students. To apply for the award, check the appropriate box at the time of case submission.
