Plastic Surgery Integrated Residency and Independent Fellowship

The Department of Surgery offers an accredited three-year independent fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as a six-year integrated residency which encompasses three additional years of fellowship training. Two residents per year are accepted for the three-year independent fellowship and the six-year integrated residency, totaling four trainee positions each year for plastic surgery.

The Division of Plastic Surgery programs contribute to the training of general surgery, orthopaedic surgery and otolaryngology residents in the area of reconstructive surgery, including skin grafts, flaps, burns, management and diagnosis of facial fractures, and the evaluation and treatment of hand injuries. Plastic surgery trainees at IU School of Medicine participate in operative procedures and on-call coverage and function as a member of the plastic surgery team.

Global Health

Plastic surgery residents now have an option to participate in an immersive, four-week global plastic surgery residency rotation in Eldoret, Kenya, during their 4th, 5th or 6th year of residency. The residency program is made possible through AMPATH, a partnership between Moi University, Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital and the AMPATH Consortium of academic health centers around the world, led by Indiana University. Through an exchange with Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, surgical residents from both Moi University School of Medicine and Indiana University School of Medicine can experience surgical rotations on both medical campuses.
