Welcome from Program Director

The residency at Broward Health is an independent, three year, ACGME accredited program.  One resident will be taken each year for the three years.  Working closely with three residents from Cleveland Clinic Florida, the complement of residents at the rotation sites will be a total of six.

Candidates that come to our program will enjoy an education from faculty and clinical experiences that offer a broad exposure to all aspects of the specialty of Plastic Surgery.

The curriculum is split between the Cleveland Clinic Florida (located in the western portion of Fort Lauderdale), and the Broward Health Hospital system.  The Cleveland Clinic rotation will allow residents to have exposure to private practices, pediatric surgery, burn surgery and general cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. 

The Broward Health Hospital District is the largest in the nation and has four different sites.  Residents will spend time at a busy level one trauma hospital working with faculty that performs complex reconstructive procedures, microsurgery, breast reconstruction, hand surgery and elective outpatient cosmetic procedures.

Full didactic curriculum will be split between the two institutions allowing for a comprehensive review of the specialty required to become a safe, effective and competent plastic surgeon that is well prepared for qualifying examinations and continuous certification.

The Fort Lauderdale/Miami region boasts one of the nation’s high speed rails steps from our hospital door where residents can enjoy everything that this tropical location has to offer that makes it a world famous destination.

We thank you for your interest in our program and do not hesitate to contact us if we can provide additional information.
