Research

Our division is active in clinical research and academic endeavors (including numerous local and national lectures, posters/abstracts and the prestigious Case of the Year presentations held by the Society for Pediatric Dermatology), in part a reflection of the fascinating and complex patients that we care for.

The fellow will have ample opportunity for involvement in scholarly activities and will attend the annual Society for Pediatric Dermatology and Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance conferences. They will have access to research support via the Center for Translational Research at Children’s National.
