Dear Colleague: The Aesthetic Society would like to announce the creation of our first International Fellowship Program established through a generous grant from Sientra. The Program’s endeavor is to enhance the aesthetic education of young plastic surgeons abroad and promote the international exchange of information relating to aesthetic plastic surgery. The International Fellow will serve as a preceptor in various aesthetic practices and institutions in the United States. Upon completion of the Program in 2010, the Fellow will write an article for “Aesthetic Society News” describing their fellowship experience. If you are or know of a plastic surgery resident/fellow who is in no later than their first year after training who may be interested in this opportunity, please share this message with your colleague. Qualified applicants will: 1. Be in no later than their first year after their plastic surgery training.
2. Have an expressed interest in aesthetic plastic surgery.
3. Complete the application found at http://www.surgery.org/professionals by Monday, February 22, 2010 to include a photograph, CV in English, and Letter of recommendation from Chief of Plastic Surgical Residency.
4. Be available to attend The Aesthetic Meeting 2010 if selected as a Finalist for the grant (see www.surgery.org/meeting2010) Meeting registration will be waived for all finalists however the individual will be responsible for all travel expenses associated with attending the meeting.
5. Agree to front all costs associated with their fellowship (if selected recipient) and submit receipts for reimbursement up to US $7,500. Thank you for your assistance to help solicit applicants who will qualify to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to enhance their aesthetic plastic surgery training.
