A Message from Dr. Ross.

Dear Doctors,

For most of us, at least at one point in our lives when someone asked, “Why do you want to be a doctor?” we answered, “So I can help people”. We learned over time the need to give a more sophisticated answer to this question, but at the heart of each one of us is the desire to be a good human, help others in a time of need, and pay it forward.

Last year we developed a grant to assist residents and fellows with travel expenses to meetings. Our hope is each of you takes the opportunity to explore the diversity of dermatology. Reach beyond the American Academy of Dermatology and attend a meeting about something different. Even if your desire is to become a Mohs surgeon, I promise to expand your knowledge of contact derm or pediatrics won’t be a waste of your time.

I finished my fellowship nearly 15 years ago and a couple of things are certain, time goes by very fast, and life gets very busy. Use your time now to explore the wonderful breadth the specialty of dermatology has to offer. We are so fortunate to be in this field; take any opportunity to learn as often and much as you are able!

Best of luck in all your endeavors. I hope one day you too pay it forward!

Amy S. Ross, MD
