Welcome to the Residents & Fellows Forum

Welcome to your ASPS Resident website. Here, you can explore all of the benefits you’ll gain from joining the ASPS Resident and Fellows Forum.

Use the resources listed on this website to help prepare for cases and conferences, reach out to ASPS leadership, discover what’s new in plastic surgery, and apply for research grants.

ASPS is your professional society and can help support you during every stage of your professional career.

Get involved by applying to be on a committee. Attend the Senior Residents Conference at Plastic Surgery The Meeting. Reach out to the resident representative on the committee you’re interested in and share your thoughts and ideas. Your participation matters!

As your resident representative to the Board of Directors, I look forward to working together to continue advancing our field of plastic surgery.
