Our Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery at Regions Hospital continues to be the flagship training center for our plastic surgery residents, who are the only plastic surgery trainees in the Twin Cities.
There are now 10 residents in our integrated six-year program and two residents in the independent three-year program. The programs are based at the University of Minnesota, but residents spend half of their time at Regions Hospital.
We offer the trainees high-volume exposure to complex trauma in all areas of the body as well as more elective care. At Regions, we have nine busy surgeons (all with academic appointments) and eight advanced practice providers.
An exciting part of the program is our international medical mission work. The residents receive support from the department to accompany us in their senior years – most recently to Peru and the Philippines.
