The Geisinger Plastic Surgery residency is a six-year integrated training program which accepts one resident each year at a PGY1 level. The residency is primarily based at Geisinger Medical Center, a tertiary care facility in Danville, Pa., which serves the needs of approximately three million residents of north central Pennsylvania. 

The residency offers a comprehensive experience in all aspects of plastic surgery with exposure to subspecialties including microsurgery, hand surgery, aesthetic surgery and craniofacial/pediatric surgery. Research opportunities are plentiful and supported by resources within the surgical institute, Geisinger Health Science Libraries and close affiliation with Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.  

This broad high level of training occurs in the scenic rural setting of central Pennsylvania offering the residents who choose Geisinger a very unique learning environment.
