Research activity

  • Residents and faculty meet two times a month to review the latest clinical and basic science research articles, gain insight into ongoing research activities within the Department, and look for answers to clinical questions.
  • Each resident has a theme for their clinical research work and reports their results four times a year. Several times a year, residents review interesting cases from their consultation services to their peers. Complex medical cases are presented with a pathology review.

Examples of topics:
  • Surgical planning and results control of aesthetic mammoplasty, accounting for correcting asymmetry of the mammary glands based on a 3D assessment using computer optical topography

Training base

Clinical practice takes place in three advanced plastic surgery clinics with modern equipment:
  • Avicenna
  • UMG
