YPS Steering Committee


The YPS Steering Committee works proactively to convey information about ASPS/PSF to residents and young plastic surgeons and encourage their professional development through membership in ASPS. Participation on this subcommittee is an opportunity for young members to become actively involved in the Society and the Foundation.

The YPS Steering Committee assists with the Annual Meeting's Residents Day and provides input on programming for the annual Senior Residents Conference. In addition, the committee has responsibility for the YPS Luncheon event and the Fresh Faces panel presentation during the annual meeting.

The YPS also hosts the popular Medical Students Day during the annual meeting, contributes to the quarterly YPS Perspective supplement to Plastic Surgery News, and encourages participation in advocacy efforts spearheaded by ASPS.


The YPS Steering Committee is structured to reflect the organization of ASPS. There are workgroups in the areas of Advocacy, Education, Communications, Member Services, Research, Academic Affairs, and International Services. If you would like to learn more about the activities of the YPS Steering Committee or any of the workgroups please contact a committee member.
