The formal didactic education programs consist of weekly conferences based upon the plastic surgery core curriculum and the ACGME program requirements. The course directors work into the curriculum the key components of each topic, including embryology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, pathology and other fundamentals to the science of surgery. The efficacy of the didactic educational program will be formally assessed by the use of the In-Service Examination, Mock Oral Boards and the Written Board Review Examination.
