All candidates must satisfy the basic requirements of the American Board of Plastic Surgery which includes at least five years of training in an approved general surgery program or board eligibility in a surgical specialty which is recognized by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Currently, preference is given to candidates who will be board eligible in general surgery (or one of the surgical specialties) when they enter the Tulane Plastic Surgery program. We participate as part of the SF Match in both their application and matching process.
The Tulane University/Ochsner Clinic Plastic Surgery Residency Program is accredited by the ACGME under the Independent Model and is three years duration. Applicants of the highest caliber who have met the requirements as stated by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, regardless of sex, race, creed, orientation or religion, will be considered. We participate in the SF Application and Matching program.
