The residency program at University Hospitals Department of Plastic Surgery in Cleveland, Ohio is a six-year integrated program.
Two residents are accepted each year for a total of 12 residents in the Department of Plastic Surgery residency program at any given time.
Our residents learn the specialty of plastic surgery, including the resection, repair, replacement, reconstruction and restoration of form and function of the integumentary system (skin, hair and nails) and its underlying anatomic systems.
In addition, residents in the Department of Plastic Surgery master the craniofacial structures, the oropharynx, the trunk, the upper/lower extremities, the breast and the perineum. Our residents also learn about migraine surgery pioneered by the faculty of our program.
