I believe what you are inquiring about is what we used to call a residents clinic. You can contact the department of plastic surgery at teaching hospitals to inquire about plastic surgery clinics staffed by resident physicians. Surgeries are performed by resident physicians under the direct supervision of attending physicians who teach the procedures. Sometimes cost can be less if surgery is booked through the resident clinic but that is not always the case. You can always be assured that the supervising surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has experience teaching resident physicians.
Are there any plastic surgery schools near Chicago, IL and surrounding areas or states that offer a discounted price for B/A?
