Program Overview

The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Residency Program at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center is a newly accredited 3-year Independent Plastic Surgery Residency Program through the ACGME.

We accept one applicant each year into the independent program for three years. Throughout their time in residency, the residents are exposed to ample training in all aspects of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Our full time faculty supplemented with our voluntary private plastic surgeons provide excellent guidance and training to encourage independence and scholarship. Our goal is to provide our residents with comprehensive training through a vigorous clinical volume and faculty-driven educational conferences.

St. Joseph’s is a Craniofacial Center which supports a robust patient population in North New Jersey. Residents work hand-in-hand with the Craniofacial Team and learn to become leaders in our institution.

Our program has a generous educational curriculum driven by our faculty in order to provide our residents with the best possible educational experience during their three years at St. Joseph’s.

The residents are also encouraged to participate in our international trips with the Program Director. This allows an opportunity to learn how to adapt to different healthcare systems while operating in severely underserved areas of the world.
