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 with a shadowing opportunity at the mentor's practice.

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.


  • Applicant must be a dermatology resident in training or less than 3 years out of residency
  • Applicants must be a current member of GALDA (annual contribution paid)
  • Prior recipients are not eligible
  • Selection is based on the applicant's interest and availability of a suitable mentor
  • US residents only at this time
