"The Plastic Surgery Residency Application Process - Is it working?"
5:15 pm 6:15 pm
Room W175AB, McCormick Place Convention Center

Moderator: William M. Kuzon, Jr., MD
Panelists: Peter J. Taub, MD
Sandra M. Sanguino, MD, MPH
Mark E. P. Prince, MD
Lindsay Allred, MD

Description: The Plastic Surgery residency matching process, especially the integrated match, is extremely competitive. Medical students intending to pursue Plastic Surgery as a career typically apply to 50 or more programs, do multiple rotations away from their own medical school, spend much of December and January of their 4th year interviewing at 10 or more programs, and spend thousands of dollars in the process. Although it's recognized that this process is problematic in several ways, solutions are elusive. The panelists all have deep knowledge and involvement in the residency matching process. Their diverse experience and perspectives will allow a thorough examination the current process and a robust discussion of potential changes going forward.
