Congratulations to all and thank you to the officers of 2014/2015 for your hard work and dedication to improving SCSDPA.

SCSDPA Accomplishments of 2014/2015

  • We are now a CME category 1 provider! Lookout for programs coming in the 2015/2016 year.
  • We currently have 5 SDPA Diplomats! A diplomat is currently the highest achievement nationwide for the dermatology PA community.  Our goal is to help every dermatology PA in South Carolina achieve this status.
    • Congratulations to the following Diplomats:
      • April McNeil
      • Michael Overcash
      • Edward Reynolds
      • Vicki Roberts
      • Heather Wolf
  • Letters to Hutcheson
    • In the 2015-2016 term, we led improved communication between the SCSDPA and SCDA leadership, and were able to clear up some misunderstanding about PAs vs MAs, and delegation of responsibilities to non-physician providers.  This led to a retraction letter and the new PA scope of practice being sent from current SCDA president Dr. Hutcheson, to all SCDA members.  This represents the majority of dermatologists in our state.  Also, for the first time in 4 years, no inaccurate or slanderous statements were made about PAs, during the SCDA business meeting.

Don’t forget to pay your dues! Only $20 for membership ($10 for students).

A big thank you to Innocutis for hosting SCSDPA at Peninsula Grill and discussing the newest development for recurrent herpes labialis.
