In an effort to share knowledge and expertise with the international community, the International Committee has compiled a database of  members who are interested in serving as hosts to visiting international plastic surgeons to observe their procedures.   Anyone interested can contact the plastic surgeon directly to make their arrangements.   This is a voluntary program and the expenses are the responsibility of the visiting surgeon.
