It’s fitting that AAD is having its exciting, epic, and extraordinary 2020 AAD Annual Meeting in Denver. Colorado has a reputation as one of the most well-educated states in the nation, and I believe our profession can boast having a commensurately well-educated collection of dedicated physicians. The culmination of our education, and its showcase, is the AAD Annual Meeting.

The 2020 AAD Annual Meeting program has more than 350 sessions which the Scientific Assembly Committee has designed to address the educational needs of dermatologists. Stimulating lectures abound, with ample opportunities for Q&A. Courses, symposia, forums, and focus sessions on myriad topics, including dermatopathology, medical, pediatric, and surgical dermatology, late-breaking advances, and hot topics will all be included. You will also undoubtedly be delighted to see more hands-on sessions, patient simulation assessments, and audience participation sessions that offer both CME and MOC credit.

I am proud to chair our 2020 AAD Annual Meeting, and I believe we have assembled a spectacular collection of dermatology education. The meeting is so strong because our members are profoundly intelligent and motivated to come and learn and share. Surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, the Annual Meeting in 2020 promises to deliver everything from breaking science and new therapies to surgical techniques, treatment options, practice management, and virtually everything in between. Check out all the educational offerings within the program, plan carefully, and come broaden your dermatological horizons in Denver!
