These include access to fellowships and certification (EBCFPRS and Board Exam), annual EAFPS meeting (at reduced registration rates), the official journals of the EAFPS: “Facial Plastic Surgery” and “JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery” (“Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery”), a number of excellent surgical courses held under the auspices of the EAFPS, and an interspecialty network of experts that allows for quick and easy communication. The reduced rate of the journals alone pays for the membership and members find the professional development opportunities throughout the year to be invaluable.
