- To maintain professional excellence in that branch of the Healing Arts established by our predecessors and recognized and respected by our contemporaries as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
- To provide a forum for the exchange of information, experience, and opinions which will serve to strengthen and inspire our members in their pursuit of the highest levels of personal conduct and professional service.
- To promote and further medical and surgical training and research pertaining to the study and treatment of congenital and acquired deformities, and to keep the medical profession and the general public informed of the ever-expanding benefits arising from progress made in these fields.
- To cooperate with other regional and national groups of Plastic Surgeons in the common endeavor to advance the specialty.
Through its CME efforts, the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons shall advance the art and science of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and interaction among its members. Our aim is to provide comprehensive educational opportunities encompassing the entire breadth of plastic and reconstructive surgery through support of research and the sponsoring of scientific meetings for the dissemination of the latest advances in our field.
These efforts will be directed toward the membership of the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and other qualified plastic surgeons in the Southeastern United States. Our annual scientific meeting achieves the above goals by presenting free papers from the members covering the wide range of plastic surgery as well as open forums featuring panels of experts. Each year, other symposia may be held which focus on a subject of current interest to our members.
