The Fellowship Program

The Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship program provides postgraduate training in facial plastic surgery. The objectives of the fellowship program are to:

  • provide an outstanding academic opportunity for the acquisition of specialized knowledge and skills in facial plastic surgery;
  • develop trained specialists who will contribute to the ongoing development of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery;
  • foster development of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery educators, especially in residency programs; and
  • encourage the development of new skills and knowledge in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery through basic research and clinical trials.

Residents in ACGME accredited programs in otolaryngology or plastic surgery are eligible to apply for the 50 or more positions available each year. The AAFPRS Foundation fellowship program is widely respected by the medical community and represents the finest postgraduate program in the world for the training of facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Since its beginning in 1969, the program has trained more than 1200 highly specialized experts to be educators and leaders in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. These individuals and their directors have performed a tremendous service to the AAFPRS and the specialty through the development and dissemination of new procedures, improvement of patient care, refinement of surgical techniques and the promotion of confidence and respect in the specialty.
