Plastic Surgery The Meeting Goes Virtual

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is unable to host Plastic Surgery The Meeting, Oct. 16-19, in San Francisco as planned. While we are disappointed that we can’t be together in person, ASPS and our partner societies are excited to come together virtually to provide this premier program with both live-online and on-demand components, including CME accreditation.

The society is currently preparing the full program of this new Virtual Plastic Surgery The Meeting, and more information regarding this virtual meeting including the new registration process along with the educational programming will be provided in the coming weeks.

Recognizing the significant educational and collaborative importance of Plastic Surgery The Meeting to the specialty – coupled with our commitment to protect the health and safety of all who attend live ASPS events – we hope you will consider joining us for this unique virtual annual meeting and see for yourself how innovative the society’s online meeting experience has become.

We have been looking forward to hosting PSTM in San Francisco this year for some time, but protecting the health and safety of members, staff and guests is our top priority. It is a great disappointment that ASPS is unable to host PSTM as a physical meeting this year. We hope, however, to turn this into an opportunity to deliver an innovative experience without walls.

As ongoing efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 continue to restrict live events with large gatherings of attendees across the United States and the world, ASPS and plastic surgery will continue to innovate to offer a virtual meeting experience second to none.

Thank you for your continued support of ASPS and Plastic Surgery The Meeting as we work to deliver the full annual meeting experience to you. Stay tuned for an announcement in the coming weeks with exciting details about the inaugural Virtual Plastic Surgery The Meeting in October.
