Application Process Candidates for residency are selected through the National Resident Matching Program. We accept only electronically-submitted application packages through the ERAS, at your medical school dean's office. Three letters of reference are required in addition to the Dean's letter. These letters should come from full-time faculty members in plastic surgery; one must come from the Chairman of the Department or the Plastic Surgery Program Director. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2013. Only completed application packages are reviewed.
