Residents Day Program Fri, Sep 20 7:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Residency comes with the unique challenge of focusing on clinical education and training while preparing to launch a practice. The Senior Residents Conference and Residents Day Program have been developed to help take away the surprises during your transition from residency to practicing surgeon. Veterans of the specialty share personal experiences, provide advice on how to land a full time position and instruct on ways to properly set up and manage a practice. Be prepared to take the next step in your career. Join ASPS at these resident-focused programs at Plastic Surgery The Meeting 2019.
