Many pediatric dermatologists are heavily involved in academics, teaching, and education. While they could formalize the work they are already doing and convert it into true academic research and publications, many don’t know how. Few resources are available for dermatologists (and pediatric dermatologists) interested in research education and there is little centralized information available for academic clinicians interested in research education. In addition, there is very little published work on pediatric dermatology education, and it is a rich area in need of exploration, particularly in light of increasing physician burnout and workforce shortages.
PeDRA’s Education Focused Study Group is comprised of like-minded individuals who explore all varieties of education related to pediatric dermatology. These areas include graduate medical education, continuing medical education, community education, and more. This group is committed to helping investigators collaborate on projects more significant and impactful than they may be able to do on their own, identifying the best journals to publish in, and inspiring clinicians to turn the work they are already doing into published research.
The Education Focused Study Group is chaired by Sonal Shah, MD of Case Western Reserve University, and vice-chaired by Leah Lalor, MD of the Medical College of Wisconsin.
