2018-2019 Monthly Meeting Schedule


The Chicago Dermatological Society is pleased to announce the 2018/2019 monthly meeting program schedule.

The information below is the most up-to-day listing of conferences. We understand the importance to our members to have the meeting schedule well in advance.  Sometimes, a schedule change is unavoidable.  That that occurs, we make every effort to make those changes far ahead of the meeting date, and the changes are highlighted and announced multiple times.  Thank you for your understanding.

A detailed meeting program always is included on the webpage devoted to that conference.  We strongly recommend attendees review that information as some specifics may be subject to change.

Registration -- The following procedures apply to all attendees for CDS meetings:

  • CDS members in good standing may use the automated online registration form set up for each meeting.  See the information below for the particular meeting or go to the meeting details webpage to complete your registration.
  • Residents and fellows at a Chicago area training program are automatically registered.  (SIU and UW residents must register for each meeting either individually or through your department.)
  • All guests must be registered.  CDS board policy states that all guests must be physicians, and that the guest may register for one meeting, after which they are expected to submit an application for membership.  The exception to this policy are research fellows who may be sponsored by one of the medical school dermatology departments; they still must pay the guest registration fee and sign-up for each meeting.
  • Medical students sponsored by a dermatology department may attend as a guest, but they must be registered in advance.  Sponsoring departments must use the online form posted on each meeting webpage.  Medical students sponsored by a non-academic member may come as a "paid" guest using the paper guest form.  To access the medical student registration form, CLICK HERE
