Programa de Harvard en cirugía plástica

por Michael Johns, Project Manager | July 11, 2006
Dr. Julian Pribaz is the Program Director for the ACGME accredited Harvard Plastic Surgery Training Program. This program is the result of the merger of three formerly separate two-year residency programs at Harvard affiliated teaching hospitals based at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. The three Harvard programs merged to provide a more enriching educational environment in which we are able to enhance the strengths of each of the individual programs.

Residents now rotate among five of Boston's finest teaching hospitals: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Children's Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Burns Institute at Boston Shriners Hospital. The rotations will include all aspects of the expanding field of plastic surgery. Emphasis has been placed on direct resident contact with nationally and internationally respected experts in addition to hands-on independent operating experience.

The five combined teaching hospitals have over 2,400 beds and approximately 8,000 resident plastic surgery cases per year. The case mix includes such areas as aesthetic surgery, breast, craniofacial reconstruction, cleft lip and palate, hand and other upper and lower extremity, oncological reconstruction of head, neck and extremities, microsurgery and burn reconstruction, with opportunities for both adult and pediatric surgery.

Program Tracks
There are two tracks for which one may match with the Harvard Program in Plastic Surgery:

Advanced Program (PGY-4 through PGY-6 Years)
The advanced program is an independent three-year program open to applicants who will have completed at least three years of general surgery or other prerequisite surgical specialty in an ACGME accredited program prior to entering this program at the PGY-4 level.

Integrated Plastic Surgery/General Surgery Program (PGY-1 to PGY-6)
This integrated six-year program is open to applicants who have completed medical school. During the first three years of the program residents will have exposure to basic concepts in plastic surgery as well as completing the general surgical prerequisites in the Harvard affiliated teaching hospitals under the supervision of plastic surgery faculty. Upon completion of the first three years, the residency training during the PGY-4 through PGY-6 years will focus on plastic surgical residency training as outlined in the advance program information.
