About This Program
The mission of the Plastic Surgery residency program at NewYork Presbyterian is to educate the future leaders of academic plastic surgery by providing these residents with the highest quality in education, teaching the residents to give the most compassionate care, and imbuing the residents with the drive to be on the forefront of medical research. The program provides experience in all of the core subject areas in the discipline of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including cosmetic surgery, hand surgery, pediatric surgery, craniofacial surgery and microsurgery. However, we provide more than just technical training; we strive to produce not only skilled surgeons but also highly moral and ethical professionals. Over the past decade, our resident graduates have either followed career pathways in academic plastic surgery, taken additional fellowship training in craniofacial surgery, microsurgery of the hand or have pursued private practice opportunities in equal numbers. All resident graduates participate in the certification process offered by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with 100 percent of the graduates becoming board-certified over time.
