You may register as a Resident or Fellow if -
You are in an approved plastic surgery residency or fellowship program. The greatest benefit we offer residents and fellows is the opportunity to attend The Aesthetic Meeting for FREE! The meeting registration fee is waived for residents and fellows with a certification letter from your Chief of Service with expected graduation date. If you are currently enrolled in the Resident Program, no additional documentation is required. International residents must submit a certification letter from your Chief of Service along with a verification letter from the national plastic surgery society that your Chief of Service is a member of that national society. Residents and Fellows may attend the Society scientific meeting, Welcome Reception, exhibits, all coffee breaks and lunches, the Program Book, and online access to abstracts and course handouts.

If you have questions regarding the resident program, or if you are not sure if you are already enrolled, contact Marissa Simpson

Course Monitors:

Residents and fellows are needed to serve as monitors and assist teaching course instructors. Volunteers will have the rare opportunity to work closely with recognized experts in aesthetic surgery and be an important and integral part of the success of the teaching courses.  Responsibilities include:

  • Attend an Information Meeting for Monitors (date/time/location to be announced.)
  • Arrive at the designated Monitor Check-In thirty minutes prior to the beginning of the course to be monitored.
  • Collect tickets from each registrant at the door and assist the instructor as needed.

Aside from the responsibilities above, monitors can participate and receive full credit for the course they monitor.  There is no limit to the number of courses a resident can monitor.  Please call the Aesthetic Society at (800) 364-2147 or send an email to as soon as possible to reserve specific courses you wish to monitor.  Requests for courses are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
