About the Program

The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) established in 2004 the Plastic Surgery Visiting Professorship Program to encourage plastic surgery residents to pursue a career in hand surgery and to increase involvement with the ASSH.  Each year, 6-8 plastic surgery programs are selected to host an ASSH visiting professor--an accomplished plastic hand surgeon who may serve as a "role model" for trainees and students. 


The ASSH sponsors the visits by covering the flight and home transportation, as well as a small honorarium for the visiting professor. In turn, the host institution is expected to provide housing, onsite transportation and meals.
 
The ASSH Plastic Surgery Professorship Program has received excellent reviews from plastic surgery faculty and residents.

Search Tips

Tip 1: Start with the basics like “carpal tunnel.” You can always add more words later to narrow down results.

Tip 2: Choose words carefully and avoid terms that do not concern surgery.

Tip 3: Avoid capitalization and conjunctions like “the,” “and,” “or,” or “in.” Also, avoid using media types like “video,” “article,” and “picture.”

Tip 4: Your results can be refined by using either the tabs at the top (Video, Articles/WEB, Images, JHS, Products/Vendors), or the filters on the left (Filter by Source, Filter by Format, Filter by Purpose, etc.).

Tip 5: Punctuation can enhance your search as well. Use quotes (“search term”) to only include pages with the same words in the same order. But only use this if you are looking for an exact word or phrase, otherwise you may exclude helpful results. Add an asterisk (search term*) as a placeholder for any unknown or wildcard terms. For example, C*l Tunnel would give you results for Cubital Tunnel and Carpal Tunnel. Place a question mark (search term?) for single-character wildcard matching. For example, pa?ent would give you results for parent, patent, etc. You may also use the plus sign (search + word) between words for words you must have in the results.

Tip 6: We are always trying to improve our search, if you are having any trouble with search please refer to our survey here and we will use your comments to improve our search. You can also watch our search help video.
