Mission Statement

The Tower Health Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is committed to providing an enriching education and clinical curriculum to prepare plastic surgery fellows to become outstanding clinicians.

We are committed to training plastic surgery fellows who are intent on delivering patient-centered healthcare for the good of all people, no matter their circumstances. We are devoted to retaining the physicians that we train to better serve our community. The strength of our training program is the result of the tremendous depth and breadth of our clinical care and the academically and clinically rigorous training program we provide. Our dedicated faculty, supported by the significant resources of Tower Health and affiliated organizations and practices, provides our trainees with the basic and clinical knowledge, procedural skills, clinical judgment, professionalism, and interpersonal skills necessary for a successful career as leaders in plastic surgery and medicine.
