​Plastic Surgery Residency and Fellowship Program

The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine plastic surgery residency program has two plastic surgery positions. The training program is a fully accredited training program. It offers two independent positions through the San Francisco Match (SF Match) as a three-year total training program after fulfilling the prerequisite requirements set forth by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. 

During the average rotation, each resident assumes increasing responsibility in both pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative patient care in all of the campus facilities. Residents are also expected to see patients in the plastic surgery clinics and attend grand rounds, conferences and journal club. 

Residents rotate at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center and Surgery Center, The Children’s Hospital, and Oklahoma VA Medical Center. Residents in our plastic surgery program can expect to perform an average of 2000 cases over their three years. Board passage rates for our residents has been 100% over the past 13 years.

There is a great deal of one on one teaching with our faculty to resident ratio, and a great deal of autonomy given to our residents. There are no fellowships offered at our program which allows for direct first hand involvement in patient care.
