Exciting news! The AAPS membership is working very hard to enhance the productivity and fun in learning this year. Although AAPS is known to have some of the very best educational opportunities in plastic surgery, much more is being done to make it even better. We are building on the exceptional innovation and hard work over the past many years to keep aspects of what has worked well, but also innovate as much as possible, to provide more efficiency and focus on topics and formats which are of clinical interest.

Academic Scholar Fund Drive 1/10/100

The Development Committee urges all AAPS Members who have not made their 1/10/100 pledge to do so today. We are moving ever closer to our stated goal of raising $5 million dollars to make the AAPS Academic Scholar Awards self-sustaining. The 1/10/100 plan makes giving simple pledge $1,000 a year for 10 years. If every member of the AAPS makes that commitment, we will have created a long-term lasting legacy of awards supporting the finest young researchers in our specialty. Where does the 100 come in? We want 100 participation.
