Maintaining and improving the quality of advanced education in nationally recognized cosmetic surgery fellowships is a primary aim of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. The Academy is an accredited council of professionals devoted to post-graduate medical education in the field of cosmetic surgery. It is the nation’s largest multi-disciplinary medical organization that exclusively devotes its educational efforts to cosmetic surgery.
Certification of advanced fellowship programs is a voluntary effort of all parties involved. The process assures fellows, specialty boards and the public that training programs are in compliance with published standards.
A fellowship in cosmetic surgery is a planned post-residency program that contains advanced education and training designed to enhance clinical skills. Fellows receive training in all aspects of general face and body cosmetic surgery.
Upon completion of the Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship, our graduates are well equipped for either community or academic practice with strong skills and technical ability. They will have had an exposure to general face and body cosmetic surgery and be prepared for the certification examination given by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
The surgical clinic operates from 7:30am to 5:00pm throughout the week, and on some weekends as well. Daily activities include client consultations, pre-op and post-op patient appointments, as well as time in the operating room. Fellows are expected to have read about the technical aspects of a procedure, including post-operative care and complications, before each and every case. They are responsible for post-operative documentation including post-op notes and case logs for the AACS. Fellows will be required to have an active Arizona medical license, DEA number and medical malpractice insurance prior to any interaction with patients. Case presentations during various meetings for work completed during the fellowship may be submitted to the AACS for review. Academic Material: Fellows will have ample resources to AACS journals, plastic surgery journals and academic textbooks. Video material on implants and various other topics and procedures will be provided. Fellows are responsible for purchasing their own basic reference materials at a discounted rate from the publishers. Opportunities to attend local lectures, advertising events and instructional seminars will be arranged.
