EAFPS Membership

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Membership of the Academy is open to National Board registered surgeons specialized in the area of head, neck and cranio-facial surgery and to Registrars/Residents in training that have served 2 years in their specialist training post. Applications need to be seconded by two Members of the Academy. The executive board decides whether the application for membership is accepted, and approval of the national delegates can be sought. Reduced membership fees are available for “Affiliated Members” (residents in training) and “Senior Members” (retired members).

EAFPS Members enjoy a number of benefits.
These include reduced registration rates for the annual EAFPS meeting and a number of excellent surgical courses held under the auspices of the EAFPS; reduced rates to subsribe for the official journals of the EAFPS: “Facial Plastic Surgery” and “JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery” (“Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery”); an interspecialty network of experts that allows for quick and easy communication; and many more.

Please contact any of the executive board members if you are interested in joining the EAFPS and would like to receive additional information. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Academy.

What members say about us

join-us-contact-page
“Membership in the EAFPS provides a supportive and professional atmosphere to discuss best practice in the field of facial plastic surgery and identify educational and career development opportunities that are worthwhile in the field. As a facial plastic surgeon I am happy to have an impartial third party advocating on my behalf to raise standards in the field as well as educate patients on the importance of seeking a specialist facial surgeon. The journal alone makes up for the cost of membership and the meeting opportunities are an important part of my professional development each year.”
