Facial Plastic Surgery Education

Dr. Helena Taylor and Dr. Stephen Sullivan recently returned from Napa, CA where they were invited participants in a Faculty Development Forum hosted by AOCMF. The AOCMF is a multispecialty community, established in 1974, consisting of a worldwide network of clinicians from the fields of oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, ENT, head and neck surgery, ophthalmology, and neurosurgery. Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Taylor, board certified plastic surgeons in the Boston and Cambridge area with fellowship training in craniomaxillofacial surgery, are faculty members for AOCMF. They frequently travel to teach other physicians as well as learn the newest techniques in facial plastic surgery, including cranioplasty, facial reconstruction, facial trauma, orbital and eyelid surgery, and nasal surgery. At this most recent symposium, they joined a small group of surgeons from around the country learned teaching and presentation skills to help train other surgeons and students.
