Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

Our Mission
The facial plastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship, in collaboration with the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, provides hands-on exposure to a wide range of facial plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures, including cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

Our Vision

The major educational objectives include:

  • Extensive understanding of facial reconstruction after Mohs surgery
  • Proficiency in the management of maxillofacial trauma using state-of-the-art techniques
  • Proficiency in rhinoplasty procedures
  • Effective management of congenital and acquired abnormalities of the head and neck

    Research and Teaching Responsibilities

    Each fellow must perform some clinical or basic science research as required by all American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) fellowship programs. Animal research facilities and limited funding are available. A travel allowance is given for educational studies in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

    Along with attending physicians, fellows are responsible for supervising residents present at many of the surgical procedures, and staff resident surgical procedures at the Veteran's Administration Hospital. Fellows may also be requested to present formal didactic lectures.
