ASDS Launches Cosmetic Dermatology Fellowship Program


The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) launched a fellowship accreditation program designed to promote post-residency training in cosmetic dermatologic surgery procedures. According to ASDS President Timothy C. Flynn, MD, fellowship training will give young dermatologists a solid educational foundation and better prepare them for the increasing consumer demand for elective procedures. Modeled after fellowship initiatives used by the American College of Mohs Surgery and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the ASDS Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship Accreditation Program will be based on six core competencies: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning, interpersonal skills, professionalism and system-based practice. The application deadline for programs seeking to begin Sept. 1 is Aug. 1. Both ASDS members and non-member applicants are able to apply for accreditation status. For more information, visit
