The Shifting Landscape of the 2020-21 Dermatology Application Cycle in the Era of the COVID-19 Pandemic

On July 22nd, the Association of Professors of Dermatology (APD) and the Dermatology Interest Group Association (DIGA) jointly hosted a webinar to offer insight into maximizing opportunities to enhance dermatology applications during the shifting landscape of this year’s match cycle. This session has been recorded. Please take the survey from the APD on transparency in the Dermatology Residency application process – the results will be used to make guidelines presented to all program directors.
