The Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers two resident positions per year in an Integrated general surgery/plastic surgery program.

The educational goals for our residents include a comprehensive and balanced plastic surgical education based on these six "core competencies":

  1. Patient care
  2. Medical knowledge
  3. Practice-based learning and improvement
  4. Interpersonal skills and communication
  5. Professionalism
  6. Systems-based practice

The first three years are designed to give you a solid foundation in the principles of surgery, as well as exposure to other disciplines.

This last 3 years of the program provides comprehensive surgical and educational experiences while working in community- and university-based clinical settings. The faculty maintains the strongest commitment to its residents and their educational advancement.
