EAFPS Members enjoy a number of benefits:
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. More information follows below about each membership benefit.
Subscriptions to Facial Plastic Surgery and/or JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery are offered at special rates for all members of the EAFPS. (These reductions have already a higher value than the whole membership fee!)
EAFPS Newsletter with information about our European Academy, with exchange of ideas and opinions and continuing education are distributed to all EAFPS members
Meetings of the EAFPS are held once per year, for which separate but discounted registration fees have to be paid. Affiliated meetings are held in various parts of the world outside Europe.
Affiliated Courses on facial plastic surgery are regularly held in different European countries. Discounted registration fees are applied to all EAFPS Members.
The EAFPS has established fellowship training centers in many cities in Europe. Members can apply for a fellowship in facial plastic surgery here.
The EAFPS offers access to the European Board exam in facial plastic surgery via The European Board for Certification in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (EBCFPRS).
Please contact any of the executive board members if you are interested in joining the EAFPS as a Member and would like to receive additional information. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Academy.
