In October 1996, then-YPS Committee Chair Raymond Dunn, MD, wrote and published the inaugural edition of YPS Perspective. His goal was to "make every effort not only to inform, but to assist the youngest and future members of ASPRS in their paths toward fulfilling careers in plastic surgery." Today, YPS Perspective is written by the members of the YPS Forum with those same goals in mind.

YPS Perspective is published quarterly in Plastic Surgery News.
