PSEN Online Learning

The Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN) is a centralized, interactive educational website created by surgeons for surgeons in all stages of their careers. The site holds an aggregation of the specialty's core knowledge and overall trends via a mix of educational resources that range from Case Reports to Lecture recordings to Surgical Spotlight videos.

Resident Education Center / Plastic Surgery Curriculum

Thanks to a joint program between ACAPS and ASPS, the PSEN Plastic Surgery Curriculum offers more than 85 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 PSEN and review transcripts to track progress.

Surgery Spotlight

An exclusive free monthly HD video program produced by PSEN, Surgery Spotlight is a "how-to" program that demonstrates 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 Reinervation.
