To characterize conferences in dermatology residency programs, we surveyed directors and chief residents. Most respondents thought their amount of conference time was just right (7-8 hours/wk); they also identified grand rounds, dermatopathology, and clinical images as best implemented, whereas journal club and basic science needed most improvement. By contrast, respondents diverged regarding conferences they wanted to establish; directors identified research and basic science, whereas chief residents listed pediatrics and surgery.
