Resident’s Corner


2018 Annual Fall Meeting Information

The Texas Dermatological Society Annual Fall Meeting will be held September 21-22, in Galveston at the Moody Gardens.

As a society benefit, TDS is offering financial assistance for housing for resident members of the Society (excluding local residents).
To apply for financial assistance please pick up the Resident Reimbursement Form at the TDS Registration Desk onsite.

TDS also invites you to participate in the Podium & Poster Competition.

Guidelines for Podium and Poster Competition

A resident is permitted to enter BOTH competitions, but they must be on different subjects.
More than one resident from each program may enter, and one entry per resident as the first author.
Presenters must be TDS members (resident membership is free - apply online).
Cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each competition. Only current residents will be eligible for prizes.
Due to time and space constraints, current residents will have priority in giving a podium presentation. If space is available, non-residents will be allowed to   present.

Housing Stipend information - Pick up the Resident Reimbursement Form onsite at the TDS Registration Desk

Resident and Post-Residency Fellow members will be reimbursed for for one nights lodging (room, tax and self-parking only) at the host hotel, or one of equal or lesser value of the special TDS room rate.

You will be responsible for making your own hotel arrangements.  Keep your hotel receipt and TDS will reimburse you following the meeting.  You will be responsible for your own travel costs.

You do not have to enter the Podium or Poster Competition to apply for the housing stipend.

Open to all non-local Residents and Post-Residency Fellows.

Please contact the TDS office (512-370-1502) if you have any questions.
