Application Procedure

This year, ACAPS is strongly encouraging all programs to use the Plastic Surgery Common Application (PSCA) for integrated residency applications. The PSCA is a freeplastic surgery-specific application crafted to both improve the residency application process and decrease financial barriers to students. Although some plastic surgery programs still accept ERAS, our program is only using the PSCA.  You may use this link to access the PSCA:

Upon accessing the application, you will be instructed to create a secure account and will be able to request letters of recommendation, transcripts, and MSPE (Dean's Letters) directly through the application portal. As in years prior the match will remain with National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).

Please direct any questions about the application to

Interview Dates for 2023-2024 Season:

Wednesday, January 3, 2024
Thursday, January 4, 2024
Friday, January 5, 2024

ACAPS has set forth a policy that all integrated plastic surgery programs will coordinate when they announce interview dates and distribute interview invitations. The purpose of this is to improve the efficiency of scheduling for applicants and programs. Advanced planning is intended to help applicants better plan for travel and to minimize cancellation and rescheduling of interviews.

Interview Policy (

Our program will distribute the initial round of interview invitations on Thursday, November 9, 2023 by 2:00pm. Responses to the invitations will not be accepted by the program coordinator until Monday, November 13, 2023 starting at 10:00am.
