St. Joseph’s University Medical Center opened a AOA approved Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship in July of 2014 to expand the surgical department and post-graduate training of residents. This is the first surgical fellowship which has been established at this institution. 

The fellows will be exposed to a variety of plastic and reconstructive surgical cases which will provide an excellent foundation for one’s surgical practice. Attending plastic surgeons have graduated from New York University, Brown University, & UT Southwestern. 

Fellows will be given the opportunity to participate in medical mission to various countries.

During the 3 years of fellowship, trainees will gain experience in reconstruction, burn, aesthetic, hand, pediatrics, craniofacial, and microsurgical aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery.
