Mission

The mission of our group is to provide a community for students interested in pursuing a career in plastic and reconstructive surgery (PRS) or in related fields including hand surgery and surgical oncology. The primary goal of our group is to host events which foster education in salient topics in the field, including (but not limited to): autologous breast reconstruction (DIEP and other common flaps), hand anatomy and hand surgery, microsurgery, principles of head and neck reconstruction, aesthetic surgery, burn and trauma care, as well as topics in gender affirmation surgery. As our institution does not have a residency program in PRS, the other goal of our group is to hold events featuring speakers from both our institution and other institutions who can speak to the diversity of careers and research opportunities in PRS.
