CDS Connections

Maintaining our camaraderie within the Chicago dermatological community

Members and residents in the Chicago Dermatological Society are invited to drop in to virtual sessions on the 3rd Tuesday of each month for fellowship, discussion, personal growth or just maintaining our connections during this time of "social distancing" (and beyond).  These will be recurring virtual meetings on Zoom... no registration required, just drop in and participate!  Our overriding goal is to maintain the joy and fun in practicing dermatology!

Here's what we have in mind:

Resident Connections -- 6 - 7 p.m.

This is an opportunity for residents to converse with each other and for CDS leaders outside of the normal academic clinical training programs to help develop skills, share tips about practicing in the real world, or whatever is of interest.

Derm Connections -- 7 - 8 p.m.

Conversation about non-clinical topics of interest, personal growth, balancing your life, practice management best practices, or any other topic.  

To join the session, just click on the links below.  It will be the same log-in each month.  

Come prepared to participate!  This definitely is not a time to passively listen to a lecture.  If you have a suggestion for a discussion topic or an exercise, please send an email to David Mann so we can put it on the docket.  CDS Connections is intended to be for you... the members and residents in training.  We want it to be something you desire and has value.
