Plastic Surgery Residents

Our Mission Heading link

The Division of Plastic, Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgery mission is to provide the highest possible level, state-of-the-art, compassionate, and respectful care to all our patients and to maintain the appropriate intellectual environment to foster and promote education and research.

The UIC Plastic Surgery Residency mission is to provide our residents with extensive clinical and theoretical knowledge to train them to be competent, skilled surgeons capable of the independent practice of plastic surgery with the highest ethical, social, and professional standards and to compete successfully in today’s demanding markets, whether in private practice, public service or academic medicine.

Our Missions align with the University of Illinois – Chicago College of Medicine.
