Fellowships

The Center for Facial Appearances is home to one of the premier odd year ASOPRS fellowship training programs in the United States. Many of the top academic leaders in the world have been trained by Dr. John McCann, as can be seen by reviewing the list of alumni below.

This is a two year, ASOPRS approved fellowship program that begins in odd years. The application process is highly competitive and the fellowship itself is extremely rigorous. All ASOPRS fellowship applications are handled through the SF Match Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Match. Application requirements and the application process are detailed on the SF Match website.

Deadline for applications is January 1st of the even year prior to the odd year the fellowship begins.
