What is the Galderma SKIN PACT Programme and why this will be of interest to you?

Everyone working in dermatology has their own vision of how the profession can make a difference. But it is those who act on their ideas and maintain their commitment that will leave a lasting impression. The SKIN PACT Awards is the first initiative under their SKIN PACT Programme and aims to recognise those who see the true potential for advancement in their field and are willing to work passionately to make that vision a reality.

What are the Galderma SKIN PACT Awards?

The SKIN PACT Awards' principal aim is to inspire dermatologists and other doctors with an interest in dermatology, to develop and help implement voluntary projects that support a sustainable dermatology community.

Two grants of US $15,000 will be awarded to support new projects, which fall under the categories of 'Community Leadership' and 'Excellence in Education'. Project proposals can be led by individuals, associations or hospitals, covering areas such as patient support, access to care, and community education.

How does it work?

  • Apply: An idea is sparked and a project proposal submitted online via the application form at Applications are open until Wednesday 4th February 2015.
  • Expert Review: In February, the Expert Panel of dermatologists has the difficult task of reviewing the proposals.
  • Community Vote: Shortlisted proposals are launched to the community for voting at the beginning of March.
  • Winners Announced: The winners are announced at the World Congress of Dermatology in Vancouver in June 2015!
