The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) is accepting applications to support research relevant to dermatologic surgeons and the dermatology specialty at large. ASDS members are strongly encouraged to submit proposals for board-directed research topics as well as research into evidence-based medicine, comparative efficacy research, quality studies and patient safety studies. In addition, studies on depth of training, scope of practice, safety records and efficacy are recommended. Research should be focused so that, upon conclusion, there should be sufficient data and results that will lead to a submission for publication in Dermatologic Surgery. Large multi-step projects are beyond the scope of the CERG program. Projects should have the potential to advance the dermatologic surgery and cosmetic surgery fields with ultimate clinically relevant applications. The 2017 Board-directed topics are:

  • Safety of cosmetic procedures
  • Demonstration of patient satisfaction of dermatologic surgery care/dermatologic surgeon care
  • Cost-effectiveness of procedures
  • Quality outcomes
  • Efficacy of screenings in diagnosing skin cancer
  • Mohs Surgery – data gaps in appropriate use criteria
  • Impact of Affordable Care Act (ACA) on dermatologic surgeons
  • Scientific validity of American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA) position statements

Awards will be made to the institution, not the individual. Multiple applications from the same institution may be submitted, however only one application may potentially be accepted. Eligible applicants must be ASDS members. Research must be conducted in the United States or Canada and with sponsorship by a department or division of dermatology or other independent dermatologic-related oversight group or organization.

Application Deadline: July 3, 2017. Award announcements will be made at the ASDS Annual Meeting, October 5-8, 2017. Application Guidelines for the award: http://www.asds.net/_EducationPage.aspx?id=1264&terms=grant
