Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel Appointed as Education Director of Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

Dallas plastic surgeon, Jeffrey M. Kenkel, M.D., Professor and Vice-Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center, has been appointed as the new Program Director for the Plastic Surgery Residency Program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. As Program Director, Dr. Kenkel will oversee the training of plastic surgery residents in one of the largest and most sought after programs in the country.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to guide the training of future plastic surgeons alongside our many talented faculty," says Dr. Kenkel.

The UT Southwestern plastic surgery residency program offers two pathways. The Independent program is designed for more traditional residents who are board-eligible in general surgery or one of the surgical subspecialties. The Integrated program accepts outstanding medical student directly from medical school and tailors their surgical training toward plastic surgery from the start of their residency.

"The whole field of medicine continues to grow at a very rapid pace. We need to ensure that our residents and graduates learn the best possible surgical and non-surgical options in plastic surgery," says Dr Kenkel. "Critical to the educational process is the ability to interpret and discriminate new data and technology. Over 80% of what our residents learn may be obsolete in five years, so learning remains an ongoing process."

Teaching the most current techniques and technologies continues to be the cornerstone of the plastic surgery residency program at UT Southwestern - training residents to be the best they can be.
