All applications are confidential.

Binding Commitment

The participating programs agree to commit to the decisions made through Plastic Surgery Fellowship Network (PSFN) with regards to acceptance or rejection of applications. Both parties are bound by the results of the Plastic Surgery Fellowship Network (PSFN). However, an applicant’s actual entry into the training program (and continuation in it) is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the prerequisite training, any special requirements the program may have stated explicitly for all applicants and satisfactory performance during training.


Observed violations of the matching rules must be reported to the Plastic Surgery Fellowship Network (PSFN), who will forward information to the sponsoring organization.

Rules For Applicants

  • I am solely responsible for the choices on my applications and for applications outcome resulting from those choices.
  • By submitting an application, both the applicants' choices and the program directors' choices make the result of this application a binding commitment. However, any offer made is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the prerequisite training as generally required and special requirements if specified by a particular training program.
  • If I obtain a position in this Plastic Surgery Fellowship Network (PSFN), I will withdraw from all other matches in post-graduate medicine that compete and conflict with it.
  • I declare that I have no obligations which might prevent me from accepting a position if offered.
  • I authorize the Plastic Surgery Fellowship Network (PSFN) the use of any information I have provided in any study approved by the Plastic Surgery Fellowship Network (PSFN), provided that no information clearly and uniquely identifying me is disclosed in reports resulting from such a study.
