Internationally renowned education programs

The reputation of Ohio State’s educational programs is gaining national and international attention as a result of positively reviewed presentations and resident and fellow participation in national and international conferences. The department has continued to enhance communication with the community faculty through social events, a monthly community faculty meeting and a city-wide morbidity and mortality conference. We have also been actively involved in a local professional society, the Columbus Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Every year, Ohio State’s internationally renowned visiting professors offer broad and diverse insights for students through our weekly didactic resident conference. Visiting professors are also encouraged to speak at the Columbus Society of Plastic Surgeons meeting, which highlights what Ohio State’s Department of Plastic Surgery has to offer the community.
