Joint Meetings:

Annual ISDP Joint Meetings are held in conjunction with the American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) Annual Meeting.  These two-day meetings are scientific in nature and the programs include:

  • Self-Assessment Course with testing at a microscope, offering CMEs, ABD SAs, and ABP SAMs; separate registration required
  • Free Communications Sessions—chosen from submitted abstracts.  These sessions consist of oral abstract presentations, posters on display; and "Dermatopathology Trainee World Cup" oral presentation for trainees only.
  • "Sabine Kohler Lecture and Award"
  • Scientific General Sessions—topics range in variety
  • Welcome Reception for all attendees

Monetary awards are presented for the best oral abstract and best poster at the meeting.  Plus monetary awards are giving for the first, second and third place winners in the "Dermatopathology Trainee World Cup" session.
