The ACAPS leadership wishes to welcome all ACAPS members as we start the new academic year. ACAPS is the leading organization responsible for training and educating plastic surgeons to best serve their patients. Even though our acronym stands for "The American Council of Academic Plastic Surgeons," I would suggest that the organization has grown well beyond academic plastic surgeons. Our membership now includes medical students, residents, and international members. Clearly "Academic Plastic Surgeons" are no longer the sole focus of ACAPS. Read More

|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. To allow applicants to gain familiarity with programs of interest, ACAPS encourages each program to arrange a virtual Meet and Greet in which applicants can interact with the residents and faculty. ACAPS will maintain a schedule of Meet and Greets on its website to help minimize overlap between programs. In the interval between the Meet and Greets and the Interviews, applicants and programs may continue a mutual exchange.

|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.
