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 the key learning points of that section and then require the resident to take a 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. Finally, the user is provided with a reading list of additional resources to study, and a post-test, where they receive remediation via discussion and references.
