Early-Career Preceptorship Program

Exclusively for ASDS Members, the ASDS Early-Career Preceptorship Program provides North American ASDS dermatologists (no more than 10 years post-residency) with the opportunity to gain key clinical and practice insights during a short practice visit with an experienced dermatologic surgeon. 

Program goals include:

Enhance and complement the skills of ASDS members in areas necessary to conduct optimal patient consultation and assessment, therapy and device selection, procedural nuances and overall patient care. Enhance practice-focused business acumen such as optimizing patient flow, decreasing overhead, improving efficiency and productivity, practice expansion and more. Facilitate the ability for early-career and experienced ASDS members to partner in positively impacting the specialty of dermatologic surgery and the patients they serve. Provide ASDS members, who serve as preceptors, the opportunity to improve their mentoring skills through a unique interface program.  

ASDS preceptorships typically provide the experience of an observership. The availability of hands-on experience depends upon local practice or institutional requirements for licensure and insurance coverage. Applicants are encouraged to seek information defining the nature of each preceptor’s training program. All visits must be complete by Dec. 22. 

Participants may receive limited funding up to $500 to help cover travel and other expenses associated with the Early-Career Preceptorship Program.
