Didactics and Education

Weekly Grand Rounds

All residents on the Plastic Surgery Service are required to attend the Friday morning Plastic Surgery Teaching Conferences.  Full-time and voluntary attendings, and outside speakers, are invited to lecture on topics covering the basic core curriculum in plastic surgery. Residents are also required to give lectures with core faculty mentors on topics of interest.


Immediately following the weekly Grand Rounds, dedicated time is allocated for the residents to review the PSEN core curriculum topics and led by a faculty member.

Plastic Surgery Society Meetings

All residents are encouraged to attend any locally held plastic surgery meetings or meetings sponsored by other sub-specialties applicable to plastic surgery in the tri-state area.

Chief residents are sent to one plastic surgery meeting during their sixth year.  Residents who have papers accepted to national meetings are given financial support and time away from the service to present.
