ASPS Education Network
Formerly known as the Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN), the ASPS Education Network (EdNet) is a centralized, interactive educational website, created by surgeons for surgeons. EdNet offers a lifetime of learning from residency to retirement. It is fully functional, and a one-stop shop for all plastic surgery specialties.
Our new learning portal has been upgraded to:
- Advance your competence
- Enhance your practice performance
- Promote patient safety
- Improve patient outcomes
The new learning portal offers a way for you to manage your continued education utilizing ASPS Education Network resources. You can keep track of videos and courses you want to review, check grades, view course and test details, and more. Below are just a few content categories on the new ASPS Education Network.
ASPS University provides multi-week virtual master classes for plastic surgeons to learn and share surgical experiences. Led by recognized surgical experts, these intimate, interactive online classes encourage a "small study group" atmosphere and provide all participants with the opportunity to engage and interact throughout the weekly webinar classes. ASPS University classes provide the opportunity for more in-depth interaction than a live lecture environment.
PRS CME Journal Articles
For more than 70 years, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, has been the one consistently excellent reference for every specialist who uses plastic surgery techniques or works in conjunction with a plastic surgeon. Through ASPS EdNet, you can earn AMA PRA Category 1 and Patient Safety credit for reviewing select PRS articles.
ASPS EdNet STAR Program
The Surgeon's Toolkit for Article Reviews (STAR Program) provides everything ASPS members need to create their very own journal club with their fellow peers and earn CME in the process.
Monthly Case Studies
What would you do? Test yourself by reading the patient presentations in our case reports and then choosing what operative path you would take. ASPS EdNet offers case reports that encompass all sub-specialties of plastic surgery. Track your time spent on case reports via the My Courses function and produce a transcript of Category 2 Credit when needed.
Exclusive HD video program produced by the ASPS Education Network, Surgery Spotlight is a "how-to" program that features surgical videos demonstrating plastic surgery procedures from markings to final stitches. All Surgery Spotlight videos are free for members to view, and some also include an optional CME test that can be purchased to earn credit for the activity. Programs have covered everything from aesthetic procedures like rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty and breast augmentation to reconstructive cases like SIEA and DIEP flap breast reconstruction, mandible reconstruction and facial reinnervation.
Resident Education Center (REC)
Thanks to a joint program between ACAPS and ASPS, the ASPS Education Network offers more than 90 self-assessment modules for practicing surgeons and residents alike. Each module provides journal article readings, presentations, videos and tests that cover all aspects of the specialty. Program directors are welcome to enroll their residents in the ASPS Education Network REC and review transcripts to track progress.
