The Plastic Surgery Foundation, which supports research and international activities of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Oct. 9 named Dr. Arun Gosain as its president.

Gosain, who serves as chief of the Division of Pediatric Plastic Surgery at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, and professor of plastic surgery at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, will begin his one-year term at ‘Plastic Surgery The Meeting’ – the Society’s annual scientific meeting – in Orlando, the foundation said in a news release.

“It is truly an honor to serve as the president of The Plastic Surgery Foundation,” Gosain said in a news release. “I look forward to leading this global organization and working alongside ASPS and my talented colleagues to ensure that we promote evidence-based practice and improve patient safety initiatives and outcomes.”

The Indian American surgeon said that, in his role, he wants to continue providing resources and support to these plastic surgeons who are committed to advancing the practice of medicine through clinical research.

“To this end, we will work to expand our growing clinical registry program in order to develop focused registries that address topics of high relevance to our sister societies,” Gosain noted. “We also wish to expand our collaboration with the organizations that focus on simulation surgery, in order to improve surgical planning and outcomes, and to enhance resident education in acquiring complex skills.”
