Our Mission

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.

Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory 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.

You are invited to post your fellowships, internships and other post-graduate plastic surgery training opportunities in the new Plastic Surgery Fellowship and Training Opportunities Directory.

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.
