Dermatologists hold a special place in the house of medicine, and we have a unique zeal for joining together in an Academy (97 percent of dermatologists in the United States are members of the AAD) and aggressively taking part in opportunities to keep up with the exponentially growing knowledge base of dermatology. 

The Boston Public Garden is just one the many attractions of the city.

While continuing medical education (CME) credits can be obtained from many sources, the AAD’s Annual Meeting and Summer Meeting represent the most important CME venues for many members. I hope that the smaller feel of the Summer Meeting will promote learning through traditional coursework, fast-paced sessions highlighting diagnosis/treatment tips, and presentation of high-yield therapeutic pearls.

At the same time, I would encourage you to take advantage of the expanded offerings of hands-on workshops and self-assessment sessions. Of course, you must recharge your mental batteries by meeting with old and new friends and touring historic Boston. Don’t miss the Freedom Trail, the tastes and smells of Faneuil Hall, and perhaps even a ride on the famous Duck Tour!

When you see me at the Meeting, please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your visit to Boston truly memorable.
