Help advance the specialty of dermatologic surgery! ASDS unites education and innovation to encourage and stimulate clinical research and the transfer of new technologies from the research settings to surgical practice through the Cutting Edge Research Grant (CERG) program. The program is an ideal mechanism for the dermatologic surgeon to investigate needed areas of clinical interest such as cosmetic or oncologic surgery. ASDS has taken a proactive approach to positively affecting the future of dermatologic surgery in recommending research on the following Board-directed topics.
Specific examples for the above list are included at asds.net/CERG/.
ASDS grants are made to individuals in the practice environment and institutions whose research proposals are of the highest caliber. A maximum total of $100,000 in funding is awarded annually by the ASDS Research Work Group in amounts up to $20,000 per institution. Corporate supporters will be recognized at the ASDS Annual Business Meeting and in all promotional materials.
The ASDS Early-Career Preceptorship Program provides young dermatologists (no more than 10 years post-residency) the opportunity to participate in a short practice visit with an experienced dermatologic surgeon to learn vital skills in patient consultation and assessment, therapy and device selection, procedural nuances, optimizing patient flow, efficiency and productivity improvement, and more.
Corporate supporters will be recognized in all of the collateral material and will be able to insert a letter of congratulations to each of the preceptees.
The goals of the Early-Career Preceptorship Program are to:
The Future Leaders Network furthers the advancement of young dermatologists, the specialty and the goals of ASDS. The program provides participants with three key mechanisms for learning through:
The Future Leaders Network is a year-long curriculum designed to develop leadership competencies of our young dermatologic surgeons (mentees) – typically within five to seven years from residency graduation – so they will be better prepared to assume leadership positions with ASDS, local or national dermatology organizations, or in their community. The program matches up to ten mentees with ten mentors in a one-on-one situation. They learn together as they attend sessions with expert teachers in organizational leadership.
Although only a small group of dermatologic surgeons directly participate in the program, companies benefit from the widespread promotion of the FLN, the projects developed and exposure to future leaders in the specialty.
Recognition for corporate support will be extensive. At every opportunity, we provide the supporting company recognition in promotional materials, ASDS Annual Meeting presentations to the Board of Directors and general membership, and the projects themselves. It’s a great way for companies to align themselves with the Society’s signature leadership program!

Industry is one of the major innovators in any medical community. Physicians need and want relevant and detailed information on new, existing, and upcoming products, services and devices. With the Quest case-based learning system, industry can now share deep knowledge of their products with physicians. It is a perfect vehicle to promote your products and services in today’s restrictive environment of physician and industry interaction where education is the preferred means of information exchange.
Supporters can provide invaluable educational content and create a challenging learning experience by providing information about their product's science, case reports, tips and tricks, medical decision-making, procedural workflows, management and / or avoidance of complications or more. Each case can contain: interactive learning with branched logic; audio voice-overs; multimedia attachments; direct reference links; downloadable files; interactive discussions; and direct company contact.
