Mentorship Program

The GALDA Mentorship program seeks to connect residents and early career dermatologists with experienced board certified dermatologists to provide advanced clinical training, promotion of leadership skills, and/or encouragement of research endeavors. The program will provide up to $1500 to reimburse housing and travel expenses associated with the mentorship experience. Applicants will be selected based on availability of funds and mentors. Mentees will be expected to write a brief summary of the mentorship experience for possible inclusion in the GALDA newsletter.
