|Message from ACAPS President Robert Weber
As I write this, Match Day is tomorrow. Students, residents, faculty, program coordinators, and program directors should take great pride in how we handled the challenges of exploring the specialty and choosing future residents in a COVID environment. It was clearly a group effort involving a lot of ingenuity and grace. The end of this year's match process leads in to a number of new projects.
First, the Winter Meeting was a huge success (congratulations Kshipra Hemal, BS and Alan T. Makhoul, BA for winning the Best Paper and Best Poster Award respectively)! Read More

|ACAPS Guidance on Virtual Interviewing for the 2020-2021 Application Cycle
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.
|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.
