The integrated residency program, which is accredited by ACGME, is open to medical school graduates interested in specializing in plastic surgery. A seven-year residency, the program includes one year in general surgery, five in plastic surgery, and one doing clinical or basic science research.
Three residents are accepted per year. Typically, 250 people apply.
The goal of the integrated residency program is to provide residents with a dynamic and innovative educational curriculum to mentor and train residents to become leaders in the field of plastic surgery.

Graduates of schools of medicine from countries other than the United States or Canada must present evidence of final certification by the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
