How to Get into Plastic Surgery ? 

Let me quote text from the Harvard Program:

"There are two tracks : (1) an independent three-year program open to applicants who have completed at least three years of a general surgery residency or other approved prerequisite residency, and (2) an integrated six-year program open to applicants who have completed medical school. In the six-year program, the first three years will be spent in a general surgery residency with general surgery rotations and rotations specifically relevant to plastic surgery; the final three years will be spent doing a program identical to that of the independent three-year program residents."

Obviously very difficult for IMGs - but there have been a few who made it with proper planning, clinical exposure, knowing the right people and of course - superb surgical skills !
