about this event

Entering its tenth successful year, UPRAS has a programme that has been constructed in conjunction with, and delivered by some of the most prominent consultant plastic surgeons and trainees in the country. 


The UPRAS conference aims to introduce and teach students and junior doctors the key components of plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery (PRAS). It endeavours to cover the majority of sub-specialties offering high quality interactive lectures, tutorials and practical sessions specifically tailored to make juniors more confident in their plastic surgery rotations.
