NEDS Case of The Year Awards (2)

The Case of the Year Award is given to the best clinical case presented during the academic year.  $ 500 dollars is awarded to the winning residency training program’s educational fund.

The Century Scholar Award is given to the dermatology resident or trainee in a dermatology rotation who wrote up the case. S/he is given a $500 Amazon gift card toward the purchase of medical textbooks.
