he American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The Plastic Surgery Foundation have partnered with corporations and foundations at the local and national level to support its members in their efforts to provide the highest quality patient care and maintain professional and ethical standards through education, research, and advocacy of socioeconomic and other professional activities.

Through our partnerships, each year a myriad of projects and activities are funded that help to achieve our shared goal to advance the quality of care for patients. Contributions to support education, research and other essential programs allow corporations and foundations to visibly demonstrate their commitment to patient safety and build mutually beneficial relationships with ASPS and The PSF.

ASPS/PSF remains committed to an environment of transparency, compliance and the avoidance of commercial influence on physician decisions involving patient care. We rigorously enforce our policies against commercial promotion in ASPS educational programs which are, in turn, conducted in full compliance with ACCME standards for commercial interaction.
