The Front Line of Plastic Surgery

The Plastic Surgery Boot Camp has transitioned to a virtual platform for 2020, to encompass all Plastic Surgery interns, while minimizing risks, costs of travel and time commitment to Boot Camp participants. Plastic Surgery education and innovation is in the making, and it is exciting to see how the Plastic Surgery Boot Camp can provide standardized and timely exposure to critical clinical content in Plastic Surgery; helping to keep Plastic Surgery both accountable for the global education of its trainees and on the forefront of adult surgical education.

The two-day weekend course offers a virtual "hands-on," practicum-based, curriculum focusing on high-yield topics in a "low/no risk" educational environment.
