The world’s largest plastic surgery association and the foremost authority on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is looking to a University of Minnesota alumnus and faculty member to lead the organization.
Bruce Cunningham, M.D., was named president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) during the society’s annual scientific meeting this past fall. He’ll hold the position for one year. He also serves on the ASPS board of directors and on the board of the organization’s Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation.
Cunningham is a professor of surgery and director of the Medical School’s Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He completed his general surgery training and a microsurgical research fellowship at the University of Minnesota.
