The residency program at the University of Kansas Medical Center is designed to broadly educate and train residents in the art and science of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The purpose of the training program is to develop highly competent, inquisitive, and responsible plastic surgeons. The training curriculum has been constructed to provide residents with the skills to be successful in any type of practice that he or she decides to pursue.
The residency is a six year integrated program that includes two residents in each year of training. The program provides comprehensive training with increasing responsibility in all aspects of Plastic Surgery. The first three years of training provide training in 'Surgery in General' and include rotations on a variety of surgical services. The last three years of training focus exclusively on Plastic Surgery.
The goal of the Plastic Surgery faculty is to offer the highest quality training in Plastic Surgery that can be provided. We strive to continually improve the program to assure that we provide the tools for our graduates to succeed in either private practice or academia. We hope to attract individuals that are intelligent, hard working, responsible, and creative, in that the quality of any residency training program is related to the quality of individuals it attracts. Most importantly, we want everyone involved in the program to have fun and enjoy our rigorous, top quality program.
