Meeting Schedule - 2021/2022

The dates for the 2021 - 2022 academic year clinical conferences appear below. Please be sure to check the CDS calendar, though, for any other meetings or conferences scheduled.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we anticipate that all of the meetings for the remainder of 2020 and through at least May of 2021 will be online. After that, we are planning to be back to normal with our usual sessions at the Gleacher Center and in Rosemont.  

Specific information concerning details and registration for meetings will appear on the conferencewebpage for that particular event..

Registration Procedures 

PLEASE NOTE!  For our online "virtual meetings" during the coronavirus pandemic, there will be a slightly different registration procedure.  Please follow the specific instructions you will find on each meeting's information page in order to sign up and to receive your link to attend the webinar presentation.

  • CDS members in good standing may use the automated online registration form set up for each meeting.  See the information below for the particular meeting or go to the meeting details webpage to complete your registration.
  • Residents and fellows at a Chicago area training program are automatically registered.  (SIU and UW residents must register for each meeting either individually or through your department.)
  • All guests must be registered.  CDS board policy states that all guests must be physicians, and that the guest may register for one meeting, after which they are expected to submit an application for membership.  The exception to this policy are research fellows who may be sponsored by one of the medical school dermatology departments; they still must pay the guest registration fee and sign-up for each meeting.
  • Medical students sponsored by a dermatology department may attend as a guest, but they must be registered in advance.  Sponsoring departments must use the online form posted on each meeting webpage.  Medical students sponsored by a non-academic member may come as a "paid" guest using the paper guest form.  To access the medical student registration form, CLICK HERE
