Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency Q&A Sessions

The Washington University Plastic Surgery Residency is a six-year integrated program, including 4 ½ years of training in breast, craniofacial, pediatrics, head/neck trauma, hand, microsurgery, cosmetic and peripheral nerve surgery. The program provides cutting-edge head-to-toe surgical training that prepares residents and fellows to be leaders in the specialties of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Program faculty and residents are hosting virtual informational sessions for interested medical students and potential applicants this summer.

Informal Q&A sessions with just the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residents:

• Wednesday, August 12 from 9-10 a.m. CST
• Wednesday, September 23 from 9-10 a.m. CST

These informal sessions are a great opportunity for potential applicants to get an insider’s perspective into the residency program, the School of Medicine, life in St. Louis and any other questions, in a friendly, low-pressure environment.

For those interested in participating in the informal Q&A sessions, please register by contacting Program Coordinator Stephanie Martino at
