Educational goal for residents

In plastic surgery, our goal is to accurately grasp a disease state such as an absence and deformation caused by various disorders including injury, tumor, and congenital abnormality and to be able to prepare an appropriate treatment plan.
Since plastic surgery is involved insurgical operations in all areas, we show the importance of team medical care and cooperation with individual departments. We promote further understanding of tissue hemodynamic and wound healing processes in the skin, cartilage and bone, which are the foundation of reconstructive surgery, and explain basic techniques of microsurgery and craniomaxillo-face surgery in lectures.
