Registration Procedures 

PLEASE NOTE!  For our online "virtual meetings" during the coronavirus pandemic, we followed a slightly different registration procedure.  IN-PERSON meetings will require advance registration in in past years.

  • 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.   To access the medical student registration form, follow the link on the meeting webpage for that particular conference.
