AAPS Cannon Student Scholarship

The American Association of Plastic Surgeons, founded in 1921, is the oldest organized Plastic Surgery organization in the world. Its Annual Meeting is the academic highlight of our specialty.

The more senior members (e.g. retired) of AAPS (Cannon Society) meet annually in conjunction with the meeting, which will be held April 8-10, 2018 at the Westin Hotel in Seattle, WA.

To nurture your interest in plastic surgery, some of the Cannon members, in combination with the AAPS, will sponsor at least five medical students to attend next yearís meeting. Sponsorship includes free registration, meals normally supplied during the meeting to attendees (including the Presidentís Dinner) and two nights in the host hotel. You will be responsible for your transportation to and from the meeting.

Our Mission

The American Council of Academic Plastic Surgeons (ACAPS) is composed of the program directors / chairpersons and associates of American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved plastic surgery residency programs in the United States. Its goal is to provide leadership and support for educational programs for plastic surgery residents. The curriculum for resident educational programs in the US has been derived from the efforts of members of this association.
