The ACAPS leadership wishes to welcome all ACAPS members as we start the new academic year.

|ACAPS Virtual Interview Policy
As a reminder, ACAPS is requesting that all plastic surgery residency programs conduct virtual interviews in the 2022-2023 resident selection cycle. View the AAMC position on interviews for 2022-2023.
ACAPS strongly feels that for equity in the application process, we would like to maintain the no in-person interviews for the current year. Most medical schools in this country have asked that the individual programs respect the AAMC recommendations. To provide equity in the interview process both for applicants and programs, all interviews for plastic surgery residency should be virtual.
Since many medical schools are enforcing a strict adherence to AAMC policy, allowing some schools to interview in person while most are restricted to virtual interviews would inject inequity into the recruiting process. Therefore, the consensus of ACAPS leadership, and membership, is that all integrated plastic surgery residency interviews for 2022-23 should be conducted virtually. However, the following programs have declined to adhere to the consensus AAMC and ACAPS policies.

|Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory
ASPS has developed a free listing service to simplify the listing and search for all types of fellowship and training opportunities within the specialty. The goal of this initiative is to provide plastic surgeons and plastic-surgeons-in-training with a searchable database of plastic surgery fellowships, observerships and internships/externship available in the United States and throughout the world.
ASPS believes this directory will help publicize existing opportunities and provide a broad ranging listing for residents and all plastic surgeons who are seeking additional training. The listings are free to post and free to search for everyone. The directory will be searchable by sub-specialty, duration, country and/or region, paid or unpaid, and more. The Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory is open to private plastic surgeons, institutions, and training directors to post their short and long-term training options.
