The Plastic, Cosmetic and Restorative Surgery Teaching Unit is led by the Plastic Surgery and Burns Department, who work in a team with General Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Neurosurgery. The unit also participates in plastic surgery services in other public and private hospitals.
Training itinerary for plastic, aesthetic and restorative surgery
During their training, residents learn about different aspects of internal medicine, with particular emphasis on cardiology, pulmonary pathology, the renal system, and diabetes mellitus. For this reason they do rotations in Pneumology, Nephrology and Endocrinology. After the rotation, specialists deepen their knowledge in intensive care for trauma and burns patients. During their final year, specialists have the opportunity to rotate through specialised areas such as hand surgery or paediatric plastic surgery.
The Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR), has its own animal facilities where students can practice microsurgery. Students may also study in the Burns Unit and take part in national and international publications and presentations.
