ASPS International Membership

ASPS Global Partners

ASPS actively seeks to advance patient care and plastic surgery on a global scale. To achieve those goals and foster a worldwide community dedicated to excellence within the specialty, ASPS has formalized agreements (Memorandum of Understanding) with national plastic surgery societies from around the world.

Each national plastic surgery society with which ASPS has signed a Memorandum of Understanding has achieved high standards in plastic surgery – and in a mutual recognition of standards, governance and ethics, all members of each National Society are eligible to join the other as an International Member.

Member Testimonials

"For me, being an international candidate of ASPS means being part of the most prestigious community of plastic surgeons. It means following a comprehensive training pathway and accessing equal opportunities, with tools such as access to the journal and REC, among others, serving as pillars of our training. Additionally, it involves interacting with leaders in the field, learning from them, and building interpersonal relationships with many colleagues in training. It's a journey that I embarked on during my days as a resident and continue now as an international candidate."
