This is a PGY-4 or a PGY-6 rotation providing residents with a three-month plastic surgery experience. The Moses campus provides both junior and senior-level operative experience in plastic surgery cases. The residents are exposed to their own patients in the clinic population that provides a broad range of reconstructive patients, as well as a strong source of aesthetic, hand, craniofacial and microsurgery plastic surgery cases of all varieties.
The goals of this rotation are:
To participate in a sophisticated university-based plastic surgery team that includes a uniquely diverse and busy pediatric plastic surgery practice at its Children’s Hospital, as well as complex head and neck, extremity and peripheral nerve reconstructions.
To learn to evaluate plastic surgery patients.
To learn management of plastic surgery patients on the wards.
To learn management of the post-operative patient.
To have introductory level operative experience in plastic surgery cases.
