International Scholars

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The Plastic Surgery Foundation's (The PSF) International Scholar Program enables plastic surgeons from abroad to study at host plastic surgery institutions in the United States for three months.

The plastic surgeon must be in the developmental stage of their studies, have completed their plastic surgery training and have flexibility to travel and study at more than one institution. The focus of this study may be clinical, research, or a combination of the two.

Please note that past International Scholar award recipients are ineligible for repeat scholarships due to the great need to train doctors internationally and limited resources.
