Residency Program

Our Mission

UT Southwestern Plastic Surgery Residency Training Program is dedicated to cultivating compassionate, technically skilled surgeons who lead with innovation in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery and a strong desire to give back to their communities. We foster a collaborative learning environment that integrates faculty-driven, strong didactic programs, hands-on clinical experience with graduated autonomy, rigorous academic research, and a commitment to ethical practice, ultimately preparing our residents to deliver patient-centered care of the highest quality.

Integrated Program

Individuals interested in applying for the Integrated Residency Program should apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS), or the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). A decision to schedule a formal interview will be based upon a screening of all applications received through this system. We conduct Integrated interviews in early January of each year. The night before the interviews, the Department holds a reception attended by current residents and faculty.

In addition to the ERAS application, UT Southwestern Plastic Surgery elected to participate in the trial of a new application process sponsored by American Council of Academic Plastic Surgeons (ACAPS). Your participation in this new application process is voluntary and your status of participation will not affect your match.
