A 20-Year Tradition of Excellence: DF Clinical Symposium
Since 2003, the Dermatology Foundation has planned and delivered its annual DF Clinical Symposium for the benefit of practitioners and their patients. Long recognized as a high-value program, the DF works each year to assemble today’s experts to deliver the most current information on a wide range of topics that every dermatologist will find useful. The program schedule includes ample time for Q&A and the opportunity to interact with faculty.
Many of the program speakers each year are former DF research awardees who have gone on to make significant contributions to our understanding of dermatologic diseases and conditions — and this year is no exception. We are especially pleased to welcome our three keynote speakers, John E. Harris, MD PhD, Aimee S. Payne, MD, PhD and Michael Rosenblum, MD, PhD. Each received the highly competitive DF Stiefel Scholar Research Award reserved for exceptional mid-career investigators.

We are pleased to announce that the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort has been secured to host the 2023 Clinical Symposium. To accommodate the shift in location, the agenda has been adjusted to begin on Thursday, February 2 and conclude on Sunday, February 5th.
