Independent Program



Current Residents in the Independent Residency Program. See the Current Residents page for more information about our residents.


As specified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, residents must have satisfactorily completed a formal training program (and are board admissible or certified) in general surgery, neurological surgery, orthopaedic surgery, otolaryngology, urology, thoracic surgery, vascular surgery, or oral and maxillofacial surgery (the latter requiring two years of clinical general surgery training in addition to an M.D./D.D.S. or D.M.D.). Successful completion of these ACGME or ADA accredited programs fulfills the prerequisite training requirement.


Applications to our program are accepted through the San Francisco Match Program Centralized Application Service. The University of Colorado Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Residency is program #4608.


Interviews are by invitation only and will be held in person on Friday, February 27, 2024.
