Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

 

Overview

 

From face to body; upper extremity to lower extremity, the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery helps patients restore form and function that have been compromised due to trauma, accident, illness or aging. The satisfaction and joy we get from each patient’s recovery is tangible and immense.

 

The Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Residency Program is a structured six-year program. Our comprehensive program has been carefully crafted and coordinated by the team, and you can expect a structured curriculum with regular formative assessments and timely feedback. When you join our department as a Resident, you become part of a passionate team of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, each striving to provide the best outcome for our patients.

 

You are invited to join the program after completing either your Transitional Year (TY) or Housemanship. You can also apply for the program in your TY or Housemanship Year.
