Used by more than 120 domestic training programs and residents from around the world


The Resident Education Center (REC) has been integrated into the curricula of most U.S.-based training programs for several years. The REC includes 88 modules of plastic surgery self-study content covering the breadth of plastic surgery practice.

The modules open with an outline of key section learning points and a required pre-test to gauge the base level of knowledge prior to exposure to the learning materials. Following the pre-test, the user is provided with at least five "best of" clinical journal articles to read, an audio-PowerPoint lecture to review, sample oral board cases to consider and, in many cases, surgical video to watch. Finally, the user is provided with a reading list of additional resources to study and a post-test, which includes remediation via discussion and references.

Senior Residents Kits

Senior Residents Kits help prepare resident surgeons for life beyond residency. The kits (one per quarter) include essential practice resources such as a complimentary subscription to CSAT, scrubs, ASPS patient education brochures and more. The sponsoring industry partner will have an exclusive opportunity to place informational inserts into the kits and ASPS will provide the sponsor with a mailing list of all residents and Young Plastic Surgeon members.
