We offer a comprehensive 5-year training program in Plastic Surgery, including all core competencies and enriched subspecialty training.
The Ottawa Hospital (TOH), our primary academic training institution, is the regional Level One trauma center and serves a catchment area of 1.2 million people. Residents also rotate through the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), our community site the Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH), and the Ross Tilley Burn Centre at Sunnybrook in Toronto.
At the Civic Hospital residents are exposed to craniofacial trauma, peripheral nerve surgery, reconstructive microsurgery with emphasis on trauma reconstruction, as well as complex hand & wrist surgery. The General and Riverside campuses offer exposure to alloplastic and autologous breast reconstruction, oncologic surgery with complex reconstructive microsurgery, as well as gender-affirming top surgery and aesthetic surgery. The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario offers clinical exposure to pediatric plastic surgery including trauma, cleft lip/palate, craniosynostosis, brachial plexus, and congenital hand. Community plastic surgery rotations are completed at the Queensway Carleton Hospital in PGY-2 and PGY-3.
