Plastic Surgery Residency

Message from the Residency Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Plastic Surgery Residency Program of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis. The faculty has worked hard to design a training program with complete, in-depth, didactic presentations and an extensive clinical experience. The program is continuously evaluated and updated to provide cutting-edge training that prepares residents and fellows to be leaders in the specialties of plastic and reconstructive surgery and hand surgery. 

Barnes-Jewish Hospital is the main teaching hospital for the residency program. U.S. News & World Report consistently includes Barnes-Jewish on its Honor Roll among the nation's top hospitals. Barnes-Jewish is a state-of-the-art medical facility, with more than 100 operating rooms running at capacity every day. Outpatient clinics and ambulatory procedures are conducted at the Center for Advanced Medicine, a patient-friendly facility that allows expedited care of ambulatory patients. A significant portion of the training also takes place at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, which is located on the Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University Medical Center campus. 

The Plastic Surgery Residency Program is associated with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The School of Medicine is one of the leading medical research, teaching and patient care institutions in the nation, and is consistently ranked one of the top medical schools by U.S. News & World Report.  Approximately 1,200 Washington University faculty members practice at either Barnes-Jewish Hospital or St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The most recent edition of The Best Doctors in America selected more than 390 Washington University faculty members as leading doctors, including seven faculty members in the Division of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
