The Department of Surgery offers an accredited three-year independent fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as a six-year integrated residency which encompasses three additional years of fellowship training. Two residents per year are accepted for the three-year independent fellowship and the six-year integrated residency, totaling four trainee positions each year for plastic surgery.
The Division of Plastic Surgery programs contribute to the training of general surgery, orthopaedic surgery and otolaryngology residents in the area of reconstructive surgery, including skin grafts, flaps, burns, management and diagnosis of facial fractures, and the evaluation and treatment of hand injuries.
