DREAM ™ at SCALE Program, taking place on Sunday, May 19th, 2024

Esteemed faculty members Leon Kircik, MD, and Michael Gold, MD, have designed the DREAM ™ at SCALE Program due to millennial physician feedback and needs assessments that identified critical gaps in recent graduate physician relationships and networking and practical clinical guidance in dermatology. In its 5th year, the program targets the best and brightest new wave of dermatologists in the country and provides them with an educational platform to interact.

DREAM ™ 2022 at SCALE offers unparalleled opportunities to cultivate relationships in this particular setting and better understand how and what to communicate with incoming millennial KOLs who are also champions of communication in social media. Future thought leaders in dermatology will convene to formulate future collaborations.

  • Experts in the field will present a range of cutting-edge clinical research. This will include clinical guidance with practical tips. Current technologies, techniques, and trends will be explored, all with the aim of providing improved treatment outcomes. Industry sponsors include some of the top dermatology companies in the United States.
  • Several of “value-added” topics will be discussed, such as: starting a new practice, practice management, starting a clinical trial site, medical photography, and a novel workshop designed to assist practitioners in managing difficult patients.
  • Network and connect with early-career specialists with similar interests and a potential for leadership.
  • Opportunity to network and collaborate with industry leaders from the top sponsors.
  • Network with meeting chairs and faculty to discuss opportunities for research and collaboration. How can this be incorporated into your career? How can this be done while upholding the highest professional and ethical standards?

DREAM ™ Canada

We are pleased to announce that DREAM™ 2023 is taking place in Toronto on October 27th – 28th, 2023 in collaboration with IDEF (International Dermatology Education Foundation) live at the Sonesta Hotel, Toronto, Ont. This cutting-edge program is designed using feedback and needs assessments from dermatology specialist physicians. We identify critical gaps in the clinical setting, creating the opportunity for a clinically focused educational program. DREAM™ will engage early-career dermatologists with established practitioners to build the fundamental skill sets required to be successful clinicians and top-tier key opinion leaders in the practice of dermatology. Participants will be selected from the new wave of millennial dermatology specialist physicians in Canada.

One of the principal offerings of the DREAM™ program is the opportunity to hear firsthand from key opinion leaders on a range of topics at the forefront of dermatology, including clinical practice guidance with dermatologic procedures, prescribing, safety and efficacy, and current and prospective trends, all with the aim of providing improved treatment outcomes. In addition, participants will be able to:

  • Attend an interactive workshop on presentation skills featuring Tom Mucciolo, the President of MediaNet, Inc., a Presentation Skills Company in New York City. With over 25 years of experience in presentation skills, Tom has given speaker training programs internationally throughout Asia, Europe, and America in the medical field.
  • Hear firsthand tips and tricks on practice and patient management.
  • Network and connect with early-career specialists with similar interests and a potential for leadership in dermatology.
  • Network and collaborate with industry leaders and sponsors.
  • Network with meeting chairs and faculty to discuss opportunities for research, clinical collaboration, and consulting.
This program intends to draw 25-30 early practice dermatologists from coast to coast (representing an important cross-section of the Canadian dermatology community) and senior key opinion leaders (Tier I dermatologists). Representatives from academia and industry will convene and discuss prevailing topics with the intent of providing a contemporary and prospective approach to optimizing dermatologic procedures in patients as well as educating and mentoring early career dermatologists on key practice principles in the clinical setting.

The program has been in existence for 7 years and has fostered a new generation of dermatologists providing an outlook on skill sets required in their practices.

The agenda, and its content, have been well appreciated by all. We have included below key testimonials from previous participants that highlight what this program has meant to them.
