During the early years of training, you will develop core skills in the care of surgical patients. For the remainder of the program, you will focus on a wide breadth of plastic surgery, including both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. Operative experience starts on day one of intern year. Our department is a very high-volume center. As a result, interns and junior residents are more likely to be first assisting in cases than double scrubbing. We are fortunate to have midlevel providers to assist with floor responsibilities and less educational cases to allow for maximal educational exposure for residents in the operating rooms and clinics. The rotation schedule is designed to fit a model of graduated autonomy with an expectation that residents, starting in their second years, will be matriculating from assisting to primary surgeon.
