At Pitt Plastic Surgery we are proud to have recruited and trained generations of leaders in our field. To date, there have been approximately 310 plastic surgery residents and fellows who have trained here at Pitt. At last count, 22 alumni of Pitt’s plastic surgery residency programs have served at one time as Division Chiefs at nearly a quarter of the nation’s 90 plastic surgery programs.
Having celebrated the elevation of Pitt Plastic Surgery to Departmental status in 2012, it is our goal to build stronger ties to our alumni, promoting a closer relationship between all of the alumni, the Department of Plastic Surgery, and the current resident trainees.
Because of the many technological advances and the advent of social media, it is now easier than ever to stay in touch. At Pitt Plastic Surgery, we will be utilizing many of these mechanisms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, and eNewsletters) to further enhance our relationships while empahsizing the camaraderie which is so special and emblematic of the Pitt Plastic Surgery Alumni.
