    PLASTIC SURGEON

    Advertisements



    can someone please explain how someone goes about getting into a ps residency after Ross or any other school for that matter. I've heard so many things, like you don't "match" into a ps residency, and that anyone with an MD can perform ps, so I just wanted to know.

    LSU,

    from what i understand, there are two ways of getting into plastics:

    -match into a 6 year combined categorical program (first 3 years general surgery, and last 3 years plastics)

    or

    -match for a 5 year categorical surgery program, then after you finish, apply for a 2 year plastics fellowship

    i don't think "that anyone with an MD can perform ps." you would have to be trained first; however you could be a DO and still get into plastics residency.

    Re: PLASTIC SURGEON

    Ross grads get into plastics quite a bit after doing a 5 year G surg residency.

    However, getting into an integrated program right out of Ross would be pretty tough even for the best of us, there arent that many spots out there.

    Then again, 2 years in a row Ross grads got an ortho and neurosurg so anything is possible.
