The program is a combined program, with Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland, along with several local hospitals and community practices participating to give residents experience and education.

Three residents are accepted per year. Typically, 250 people apply.

Program Goals

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.
