Repeating an open invitation, this time for Visiting Residents:

The UC Davis Division of Plastic Surgery is seeking Visiting Residents to help cover our service starting APRIL 2017. We currently lack any intern coverage for the months of April, May, and June 2017. I've received some responses already, but wanted to expand the invitation to residents of all training backgrounds interested in plastic surgery, including General Surgery, OMFS, ENT, Orthopaedics, Urology, Neurosurgery, EM, and Military (perhaps with flex time on Flight Medicine).

For the foreseeable future, we still commit one (1) training position for the Integrated track and one (1) for the Independent track. We successfully adjourned our 2017 Integrated Match and interview day for the 2017 Independent Match and can say confidently that a month spent with us is a month well-invested, whether or not you end up at our institution for residency training.

Opportunities will exist to help our residents take call, work up hand and facial trauma consults (including bedside suture repairs and fracture reductions), as well as to truly function as a plastic surgery resident, scrub complex wound and breast reconstruction, and participate in all intra- and extra-mural Division activities, including Tuesday Grand Rounds and M&M, Wednesday Journal Club, Friday Flap and Selected Readings/Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN) Conferences, and plastic surgery research projects going to publication. Past Visiting Residents can attest that the "hands-on" component makes the "intern" month with us more like a month of actual, high-yield plastic surgery residency training!

We adhere to all ACGME and RRC regulations, including compliance with duty hours and clinical expectations for residents and medical students alike.

Please PM me STAT with your interest. We can then exchange e-mail/cells, and from there I can direct you to our Program Coordinator, Marissa Hubbard as well as our Program Director, Dr. Michael Wong, to help make arrangements for a Visiting Resident month (or more than one month if your program allows).

Multiple residents in our program have finished, detached living space for use by Visiting SubIs and Residents that is within walking distance from the hospital. Renting in Sacramento is very reasonable!

With much appreciation,
-A graduating Plastic Surgery Chief Administrative Resident
