Access Derm


Volunteer to join AAD’s philanthropic teledermatology program, designed to deliver dermatologic expertise to underserved populations.

AccessDerm will:

  • Engage board-certified, AAD member dermatologists and residents in training in providing safe and secure telemedicine consultations to underserved communities in their state.
  • Provide a telemedicine platform free of charge to eligible sites providing health care services to underserved populations in the United States.

How AccessDerm works

Teledermatology services will be coordinated through those Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers that have collaborated with the AAD AccessDerm program. The primary care provider will initiate a derm consult via AccessDerm by uploading patient consult request.


This request will be transmitted to a dermatologist who will then review the case and provide feedback to the patient’s primary care provider. AccessDerm offers store-and-forward (photos, teledermoscopy images, teledermatopathology images, and short videos) between referring clinicians and dermatologists. Learn more about MedWeb's teledermatology platform.

    Special thanks to our AccessDerm partners:

    The MAVEN Project (Medical Alumni Volunteer Expert Network)
    The MAVEN Project is a 501(c)3 that engages physicians to volunteer their clinical expertise via telehealth technology to medically under-resourced communities across the country. By linking their corps of expert volunteer physicians to clinics and organizations in need, The MAVEN Project improves access to quality healthcare for underserved and underinsured patients living in inner cities and rural areas who are particularly affected by local physician shortages and limited specialist services, making needed care less accessible or completely out of reach. To meet these growing access needs, The MAVEN Project offers a suite of services, including provider-to-provider scheduled and on-demand consults, asynchronous consults, educational sessions designed for primary care providers, and mentoring services.
