The Mount Sinai Health System runs an integrated six-year training program in New York City.
Mount Sinai has a rich history of training plastic surgeons ready to enter either academic or private practice. Our division and residency program were created in 1952 by world-renowned surgeon and educator Arthur Barsky, MD. Since then, the division has grown as the Mount Sinai Health System expands to cover the tristate area. Today, we are proud to have one of the most prestigious plastic surgery residency training programs in the country.
We accept three residents per academic year who rotate at six major hospitals in the metropolitan area over six years, including three Level 1 Trauma Centers, two nationally ranked children’s hospitals, one Veteran’s Administration hospital, and several private practices.
In more than 60 years, our program has trained more than one hundred plastic surgeons. Mount Sinai plastic surgery residents are consistently accepted into the most competitive fellowship programs. Recent graduates have completed fellowships at Philadelphia Hand Center (hand), MD Anderson (microsurgery), University of Pittsburgh (craniofacial), University of Pennsylvania (microsurgery), University of Atlanta (craniofacial), and New York University (hand), in addition to the Operation Smile international fellowship.
