  • Does a fellowship help?
  • Discovering valuable programs for the new-to-practice surgeon
  • What can you ask for in an academic or private/employed contract
  • Physician Financial Wellness

Back by popular demand:

  • How to prepare for an interview
  • Emotional intelligence: Building and keeping your team happy
  • Introduction to risk management and avoiding malpractice

A presentation by the Young Plastic Surgeons (YPS) and an award-winning keynote speaker round out the 2018 Residents Day Program.
