ACAPS - Integrated Interview Invitation Policy Update for 2023-2024

ACAPS has set forth a policy that all integrated plastic surgery programs will coordinate when they announce interview dates and distribute interview invitations. The purpose of this is to improve the efficiency of scheduling for applicants and programs. Advanced planning is intended to help applicants better plan for travel and to minimize cancellation and rescheduling of interviews.
