A standalone meeting that runs from Saturday Morning to Sunday at Noon, held in a warm weather venue, with content aimed towards faculty but also includes two sessions of abstract-based medical student/resident research selections.
The Business meetings provide an opportunity for members to come together and discuss particularly timely and important issues, and to get involved in matters that impact the field of academic plastic surgery. Members are further represented and their voices heard through ACAPS representative positions held in related societies.
ACAPS has many active committees that are populated by member volunteers that want to get more involved and to help advance the efforts of academic plastic surgery.
PS Coordinators Resources
ACAPS recognizes the pivotal role that plastic surgery coordinators play in the administration of PS training programs. A PS Coordinators Session is conducted annually at the time of the Fall Meeting. In addition, ACAPS is exploring other opportunities for resources for PS Coordinators.
