Book now for this year's annual Undergraduate Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Conference.

Many medical schools in the United Kingdom offer little exposure to the specialist field of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery; however, It is one of the fastest growing specialties, with principles and concepts that can be applied across the breadth of surgery.

Almost every surgeon will come into contact with this specialty at some point during their career.

Entering its 11th successful year, the conference aims to introduce and teach students and junior doctors the key components of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

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.

Topics covered:

  • Introductions to the core areas of plastic surgery
  • Guidance on the plastic surgery training pathway

For delegates attending the lectures only, the programme finishes at 1.30pm with lunch. Please feel free to network over the refreshments.
