International Fellowship Program

The International Fellowship supports plastic surgeons from the communities we serve who practice in their home communities and wish to acquire intensive hands-on surgical training not otherwise available to them. The goal is that these surgeons and specialists will eventually train others in their communities and build up local programs. Travel and living expenses may be covered and a stipend may be provided. International Fellowship applicants must be:

– plastic surgeons, craniofacial surgeons or surgeons in related fields from low income counties,

– who seek a minimum of 6 months of hands-on surgical training at our international partner sites, such as those in Mexico City.
