Become a member of the New York Society of Dermatology PAs (NYSDPA)

Why Join?

We are the only group in the State of New York that is focused on supporting and promoting Physician Assistants who practice dermatology.  We offer membership to  clinicians, members of the pharmaceutical industry, as well as students. All are welcome who have an interest in the field of dermatology!  

Benefits of Membership:
Members are the first to know about dinner lectures, roundtable discussions, and free CME seminars.  Also enjoy reduced registration for any other CME events, symposiums, or workshops.  Members are kept up-to-date with all national or state legislative issues that impact the practice of dermatology for PAs in New York.  Lastly, networking opportunities, job postings, and ongoing programs on contracts and job-related issues help you develop your career in dermatology.

The NYSDPA is currently able to offer membership at NO CHARGE thanks to generous support from the dermatology pharmaceutical industry (see our sponsors).
