European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery
Committee of Education
Due to the increasing European demand of high quality standards in the field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, the EAFPS continuously strives to enhance the education program. Since 2017 we offer our members 3 different training programs. Construct your own specific training program using the lists of training centers below. Since 2020 each completed training program is awarded with an official EAFPS certificate.

A. Fellowship training program
A fellowship program in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a period of hands-on surgical training and observation with a duration of at least 12 months. After completing the fellowship, the fellow is expected to sit the Board exam in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, leading to Board certification. Before contacting the Fellowship Committee, please ensure you meet the mandatory requirements for a fellowship and strictly follow the application process, which is explained in the links provided below.

B. Observership Programme
The EAFPS Observership Program is defined as a period of 1-4 weeks, during which observation and training in clinical management and surgery is offered. It is important to understand that a working visit is distinct from a fellowship training program in facial plastic surgery. However, an Observership Program Certificate is provided that adds value to the fellowship application process.
A candidate may apply to more than one EAFPS Observership Programs in different centres: The centres are listed below.
