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.
|ACAPS Approved Surveys
Any survey request to Plastic Surgery Program Directors, Coordinators or Residents should be submitted to ACAPS for review and approval before being sent to PDs Coordinators or Residents. Request should be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org using this template. This process does not apply to surveys from other major societies. Our Program Coordinators and Program Directors will be under no obligation to respond to any independent survey not approved by ACAPS. Please note the ACAPS Policy regarding Submitted surveys and note the new quarterly review schedule.
