What's New
President's Message Donald Mackay, MD - President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

As you know the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to cancel the 2020 AAPS Annual Meeting in Chicago. The Board has had two conference calls and discussed options for the 2020 meeting that included delaying it to later in the year, having a virtual or partly virtual meeting, merging it with the 2021 meeting, delaying everything by a year or cancelling it altogether.

Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory
ASPS has developed a free listing service to simplify the listing and search for all types of fellowship and training opportunities within the specialty. The goal of this initiative is to provide plastic surgeons and plastic-surgeons-in-training with a searchable database of plastic surgery fellowships, observerships and internships/externship available in the United States and throughout the world.

You are invited to post your fellowships, internships and other post-graduate plastic surgery training opportunities in the new Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory at https://www1.plasticsurgery.org/globaltraining.

ASPS believes this directory will help publicize existing opportunities and provide a broad ranging listing for residents and all plastic surgeons who are seeking additional training. The listings are free to post and free to search for everyone. The directory will be searchable by sub-specialty, duration, country and/or region, paid or unpaid, and more. The Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory is open to private plastic surgeons, institutions, and training directors to post their short and long-term training options.
