The Cutting Edge: USC Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Surgical Skills Course

USC Roski Eye Institute’s Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Service often requires an interdisciplinary approach, collaborating across several disciplines, which include dermatologists, otolaryngologists, general plastic surgeons and even ocular oncologists. USC Roski Eye Institute is one of few sites to offer the breadth and depth of both cosmetic and functional ophthalmic and orbital applications.

Each year, our residents and fellows are given the opportunity to take part in our USC Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Surgical Skills Course: The Cutting Edge. This course has received critical acclaim, with guest faculty and attendees coming from all over the world to participate.

Please explore some of the highlights from our most recent courses. Check back here for updates regarding our upcoming 2019 course.
