Residency Program

Residents are trained in all aspects of plastic surgery including thermal injury, reconstructive surgery, microvascular reconstruction, oncologic reconstruction, head and neck reconstruction, craniofacial trauma, hand surgery, pediatric plastic surgery, cleft and craniofacial surgery, and aesthetic surgery. Our training model is that of an apprenticeship: during each rotation, each resident is assigned to one attending and participates in all patient care within that attending’s scope of practice. Residents participate in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative management of each patient and are encouraged to formulate and execute treatment plans as they progress in training. Chief residents are provided many opportunities for independent growth to meet the goals of leadership and autonomy for their final year of training. This includes education of medical students, leading our inpatient service, and greater clinical independence in our chief resident clinic.

Integrated Residency Program

Two residents are accepted each year. This program is truly integrated; each rotation during the first three years is selected in order to provide the best possible foundation on which to build an education in plastic surgery. The Department of Plastic Surgery considers all applicants to its integrated program and participates with ERAS and the National Resident Matching Program.


Our program has had many residents throughout the years. Learn more about our current or past residents for the Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program.
