Moses - Second Year
This is a PGY-5 or a PGY-7 rotation intended to give all residents a three-month plastic surgery experience. The second-year rotation at the Moses campus exposes the senior residents 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, and craniofacial plastic surgery cases of all varieties.
The goals of the rotation are for the residents:
- To demonstrate the proper evaluation of the plastic surgery patient and teach these techniques to their junior resident, rotating residents, and students.
- To demonstrate the proper management of plastic surgery patients on the wards.
- To demonstrate the proper management of the post-operative patient.
- To assist and perform plastic surgery procedures appropriate for level of training.
At the conclusion of the rotation, residents should show senior-level competence and expertise in plastic surgery procedures such as:
- Congenital defects of the head and neck, including clefts of the lip and palate, and craniofacial surgery.
- Neoplasms of the head and neck, including the oropharynx, and the importance of endoscopy in the management of these cases.
