The AAD is bringing you the biggest and best in San Diego
2024 AAD Annual Meeting will be the largest on record.
The AAD is bringing the world’s largest dermatology meeting to San Diego for its 2024 AAD Annual Meeting, March 8-12. This will be the AAD’s first meeting in San Diego since its record-breaking meeting in 2018, and you can expect the 2024 meeting to be larger than ever — with more than 300 sessions to choose from and more than 10,000 medical personnel in attendance. The meeting delivers more education, valuable practice information, and networking opportunities than any other meeting in the specialty.
With its scenic waterfront location, the San Diego Convention Center has been a perennial favorite among attendees. It’s located within an area rich with history, culture, and attractions. Balboa Park, the nearby Gaslamp Quarter, La Jolla, Pacific Beach, the San Diego Zoo, and the USS Midway Museum are just a few of the many local highlights of the area. San Diego is home to approximately 7,000 restaurants and more than 150 craft breweries.
But the real draw in March will be the Academy’s large offering of education, networking, and other meeting-related events. Featured sessions include titles you have been looking forward to, like Big Rashes in Little Patients, Hair Loss From Trichoscopy to Therapy, Controversies in Acne and Rosacea, Dermatologic Surgery: Cosmetic Tips and Pearls, Hand and Foot Psoriasis, and Alopecia: Work-Up and Treatment. You can also look forward to two Late-Breaking Research sessions and two hands-on courses.
There will also be more than 40 new sessions, with titles including Lasers & Energy Devices in the Treatment of Acne, Treating the “Outsides” of the Inpatient: Pediatric Consults for the General Dermatologist, Giving a Great Talk: On Zoom or in the Room, Navigating Unchartered Waters: The Management of Autoimmune and Inflammatory Skin Disorders in Pregnant and Breastfeeding Patients, and Hair Loss and Health in Black Women.
Friday, March 8, offers more than 90 sessions, including the ever-popular Hot Topics, Conquer the Boards, two new live demonstration courses, and several practice management sessions. The AAD Career Networking Event is also on Friday.
On Sunday, March 10, be sure to attend the Annual Business Meeting, followed by a full Plenary session with expert speakers presenting on a variety of topics. There’s another late-breaking session on Sunday as well as Boards and Beyond, and scores of other topics.
Monday has more than 60 sessions including several hands-on sessions. And, of course, the meeting ends with two great sessions on Tuesday.
Save some time to see the more than 350 exhibiting companies in the Exhibit Hall, and make sure to stop by the AAD Resource Center, Booth 739, to learn more about your member benefits and save on practice management resources, patient handouts, and professional education activities.
