The Pennsylvania Academy of Dermatology and
Dermatologic Surgery is the only statewide organization that exclusively
represents dermatologists and their patients. The PAD is the voice of
Dermatology for both the state legislature and third party payers. The PAD
promotes education and camaraderie through our Annual Meeting and keeps members
informed through our e-journal, Skin Lines. Apply online for membership!
There are three classes of membership: Fellow, Resident Fellow and Life Member. Discounted dues are available for early career physicians in their first three years of practice who meet PAD membership requirements. Dues are free for full-time Resident Fellows who are active full-time in a dermatology residency or fellowship.
