The theme for this year’s scientific program is entitled “Imagination Inspires Innovation”.  The application of this philosophy could best be defined in the following quote from Walt Disney: “We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”  The desire to keep improving outcomes for our patients and the curiosity of applying defined plastic surgical principles to new techniques and technologies keeps forging new paths for our specialty.  Mark your calendars for an educational, collegial and enjoyable family gathering in Orlando. 

New this year will be a Melanoma Update panel.  We will bring back, by popular demand, the following sessions:   “Hot Topics”, “Problems and Pearls”, “Lightning Rounds”, “Just the Facts”, as well as guest lecturers from ASPS and ASAPS. In addition, a Maintenance of Certification (MOC) approved course will be offered again this year.  The Resident Competition papers for the Glancy award will be shortened to five minute presentations with twelve residents competing for the coveted award.  Residents will also be able to participate in the annual “Jeopardy Bowl”, poster presentations, as well as a luncheon with Dr. Mark Codner, who will be addressing the business side of starting a practice. We are arranging a legal expert to render advice for residents and young surgeons who are preparing to sign an employment contract.  With increasing demands being placed on academic plastic surgery training programs, we are convening an early breakfast session for a faculty development roundtable. We also plan an informal forum on legislative advocacy and patient safety as it relates to “scope of practice issues”.   These issues are becoming more prevalent and contentious in our southeastern states. 

Our last panel will be geared toward our more mature plastic surgeons seeking advice on transitioning to retirement or a non-surgical career.  There is still room on the program for member papers.  Please submit your abstracts online at

As always, count on having ample time in the afternoons to relax, enjoy the Southeastern tradition of many social and sporting functions as well as the myriad of entertainment opportunities that the Disney complex has to offer.  We’re looking forward to seeing all of you in June!
