The American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD’s) Education and Volunteers Abroad Committee provides four grants per year to dermatology residents from the United States who are in their second or third year of residency to participate in a rural health elective in Chinle, AZ. This elective takes place at the Indian Health Service for one to two weeks.

Through this program, residents provide dermatologic care to the Navajo Nation population and work with primary health care providers to assist with diagnosis and management of dermatologic diseases.

Grant recipients receive a stipend for airfare, accommodations, and board. Applications are open to second- and third-year residents. Grants are available for rotations to be completed in March, May, August, and November during a period of one to two week(s).

The deadline to apply for 2016 rotations is April 1, 2015. To apply or to learn more about this grant, visit
