Plastic Surgery Interest Group (PSIG)

Mission: The mission of the Plastic Surgery Interest Group (PSIG) is to promote
student awareness and education in this diverse surgical specialty. We aim to impart fundamental
knowledge about plastic surgery, including but not limited to: craniofacial, hand, microsurgery,
burns, and aesthetic surgery. To accomplish this, PSIG provides students with opportunities to
learn from and interact with various professionals in this specialty. Those activities include
seminars throughout the year, suturing clinics, shadowing opportunities, and a regular journal
club in which students review relevant literature with plastic surgeons as well as in depth
discussions regarding patient care and research.
