Letter from the EC Chairman

It gives me great pleasure to share with you the changes that have been implemented in the ISAPS Education Council. The EC has a new and expanded role within the ISAPS organization including full responsibility for the Biennial Congress Scientific Program, all ISAPS Courses, approval of Endorsed Programs, and coordination of ISAPS Symposia. The EC will work closely with ISAPS members, the National Secretaries and National Societies to insure their involvement and full support of these four educational activities. Our mission is to provide Aesthetic Education Worldwide!

There are three programs that offer you and your National Society assistance:

ISAPS Symposia

These are one-day, free educational events organized by ISAPS members and/or National Secretaries and are usually scheduled the day before a National Society Meeting. ISAPS members are encouraged to contact any of the ISAPS Professors to arrange for an ISAPS Symposium. These distinguished members are indicated by an icon after their name and in the list under ISAPS Professors in the Education Council section of our website. Travel, hotel and all expenses are the responsibility of the hosting organization. Professors are usually the guests of the society to attend the National Society meeting following the Symposium.

ISAPS Endorsed Programs

These educational activities are sponsored and produced entirely by ISAPS members, National Secretaries and National Societies. A completed application for endorsement will be promptly reviewed and once approved will provide your educational program with the ISAPS logo, official endorsement statement, access to the ISAPS mailing list, and worldwide marketing through our newsletter, journal and e-mail blasts to members. There is a fee payable to ISAPS with the application for this program. The application form can be downloaded from our website.

ISAPS Instructional Courses

ISAPS Courses are fully organized by ISAPS. The EC is responsible for content, faculty selection and all financial management of the course. An ISAPS member, a National Secretary or a National Society affiliated with ISAPS can request a course to be held in their country. The EC will schedule an official Instructional Course in the ISAPS Calendar to avoid conflicts with other meetings. Local hosts will be asked to assist with arrangements for the course and individual registration fees will be paid to ISAPS using an on-line payment system.

Updated information about our courses can be found on our website, in ISAPS News, and in our journal, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Optional donations to the Education Council to support our educational efforts in underserved countries can be made with annual dues payments using our secure on-line system.

Chair, ISAPS Education Council
