The 64th Annual PSRC Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland May 2-5, 2019 is almost upon us. We are looking forward to tremendous attendance and participation. Dr. Gregory Borschel (Program Chair) and I are planning outstanding scientific programs and engaging social events, which will take place in and around Baltimore city. The meeting will celebrate Plastic Surgery Research including basic, clinical and translational aspects. A major highlight of the program will be the integration of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons/Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF) Research Fundamentals Workshop (RFW) over the course of the entire PSRC program. Dr. Summer Hanson and Dr. Jason Ko were outstanding in helping us make this integration with the RFW seamless.
The Local Program will take place at The Johns Hopkins Hospital on Thursday May 2nd at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in the Chevy Chase Auditorium... More

The recent call for mentees for the PSRC Mentorship Program cycle yielded an overwhelming response of more than 60 Mentees! The Mentorship Committee is in need of more Mentors with which to match them. More
In September the PSRC Technology Committee initiated a "Social Media Takeover" and it has become wildly successful! The takeover is an opportunity for different institutions to showcase their Plastic Surgery Department. Residents & Fellows are the upcoming faces of PSRC and it's important for them to see the society during those years of learning, it's an added benefit to be a part of the society during these takeover. This past fall institutions that participated included UCLA, USC, MD Anderson, Duke, Harvard, the University of Chicago, and Rutgers. We are looking forward to a spring filled with more institutions showcasing their talents including Johns Hopkins, Stanford, the University of Wisconsin, University of Pittsburgh and the University of Michigan. If your institution is interested in participating please contact our administrative offices at: firstname.lastname@example.org and they will find a week to include you!
The PSRC Social media accounts continue to grow and thrive as we continue these takeovers. Be sure to follow along for these takeovers and keep up to date on all the societies activities by "Liking" us on Facebook or by following us on Instagram and Twitter.
The 2019 PSRC Business Meeting will be held Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 12:00 PM at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. The Active membership will elect the 2020-2021 PSRC Chair-Elect and Vice Chair during the 2019 Business Meeting. The addition of the Vice Chair position was added to the by-laws by the Active membership in fall 2018 in an effort to extend opportunities for leadership and program planning for the Research Council. To get the Research Council on track with the expanded rotation, two candidates will be elected for the leadership line in 2019. All members of PSRC are welcome to attend but per the by-laws only active members will be allowed to vote.
