Core Curriculum Review
Open to current AACS members, the Core Curriculum Review webinars, which feature topics from the newly established Core Curriculum and Reading List, are developed by members of the Fellowship Committee and current Training Fellows. These programs provide an interactive opportunity not usually available with standard lectures; attendees are encouraged to ask questions of the presenters during the webinar.
The webinars are held through Go To Meeting and occur the third Wednesday of every month at 9:00 p.m. EST. The webinars can accommodate up to 100 participants and are scheduled for one hour, but typically last 90 minutes due to questions and faculty/fellow interaction.
How to participate: Contact Margaret Bengtson, AACS Coordinator, email@example.com for instructions on gaining access.
"Completing a fellowship through the AACS has allowed me to embark in a career in cosmetic surgery. Without this training, my practice would not resemble what it does today. In addition to the experience and education that I gained, I have been delightfully surprised by the camaraderie of the surgeons I met within the organization."
