Surgeons in Humanitarian Alliance for Reconstruction, Research and Education SHARE

Surgeons in Humanitarian Alliance for Reconstructive, Research and Education (SHARE) is a new program from The PSF that seeks to enhance collaboration to improve care and surgical capacity in regions with limited numbers of plastic surgeons but high incidence of conditions requiring plastic surgery treatment. The SHARE program is tailored to local learners and their environment through three core components: Global Learners, Global Educators and Global Researchers.

Global Learners

SHARE Global Learners are residents and junior surgeons from around the world who have demonstrated interest and ability in plastic surgery to establish an online community for regular case presentations, lectures, collaboration and mentorship. Global Learners will receive mentorship and access to online educational materials from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Global Educators

SHARE Global Educators provide mentorship and instruction to the Global Learners Community with teaching opportunities that range from online lectures to short teaching trips to multi-week "Professor in Residence" opportunities (due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, teaching opportunities are temporarily limited to remote learning).

Applications for Global Educators are now being accepted – click here to apply.

Global Researchers

SHARE Global Researchers will receive mentorship from established PSF researchers and be provided access to existing PSF Research Fundamentals resources on grant writing, research methods, data analysis and manuscript writing. The goal is to expand the body of plastic surgery knowledge and shape the development of new research projects to enhance the specialty worldwide.
