The Case of the Year Award is given to the best clinical case presented during the academic year. Five hundred dollars is awarded to the winning residency training program’s educational fund.
The Century Scholar Award is given to the dermatology resident or trainee rotating in their dermatology rotation who wrote up the case. He or she is given a $500 Amazon gift card toward the purchase of books.
