Wisconsin Plastic Surgery Residency Awarded National, Regional Rankings

The University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery’s Division of Plastic Surgery recently achieved high rankings for its residency program, placing second in the Midwest and tenth nationally.

“I’m thrilled to see all of the ways our division is moving surgery forward are being recognized on a national scale,” Dr. Michael Bentz, Division Chair and Layton Rikkers MD Professor in the Division of Plastic Surgery, said. “Every day, our residents change lives, and the support from faculty, staff, and our numerous collaborators around UW-Madison are a true embodiment of the Wisconsin Idea.”

The Integrated Plastic Surgery Residency program is one of our residencies offered at Wisconsin Surgery and hosts 18 residents, accepting between 3 residents per year. The program, which combines research, education, and clinical duties, is known for its comprehensive approach. By emphasizing collaboration with fellow physicians, regardless of specialty, residents best serve the longitudinal care of patients from initial evaluation through surgery and postoperative management.

The rankings are based on voting via Doximity, the largest online professional networking platform for doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and pharmacists.
