Young Microsurgeons Surgeons Group

Young Microsurgeons Surgeons Group

What is YMG?

The Young Microsurgeons Group is made up of candidate and active members of the ASRM who are within 8 years of completion of training. We are an enthusiastic compilation of microsurgeons who are committed to advancing the art and science of reconstructive surgery. Through early involvement in the ASRM, we position ourselves to make an impact on all aspects of plastic surgery through clinical, research, and academic channels. Members from our group have shaped the ASRM through the steering committee and executive council and have gone on take significant leadership roles in the ASRM, in addition to many plastic surgery societies.
