Each year, every plastic surgery resident nationwide sits down to take the Plastic Surgery In-Service Exam, a multiple-choice examination administered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Traditionally, there were four sections of the test, each with 50 questions: Comprehensive, Hand and Lower Extremity, Craniomaxillofacial, and Breast and Cosmetic. In 2016, a new section was introduced, Core Surgical Principles, which will begin to count toward the exam grade in 2017. The exam is always a source of stress for residents who have a demanding schedule filled with clinical, administrative, and research responsibilities on top of which they must prepare for this important test. Complicating things, there exist a plethora of study materials from which to choose. An excellent resource is the Resident Education Center of the Plastic Surgery Education Network ( ), to which all residents should make sure they are enrolled. Further, all residents should review old In-Service Exam questions (available on the ACAPS website -Exams/). However, supplementing with book review is imperative to any study plan. Given the limited time for study available in our busy schedules, time must be maximized by using the best and most efficient review materials available. With this in mind, we discuss below the most commonly utilized review books to help current and future residents plan their In-Service studying.
Essentials of Plastic Surgery may be the most commonly used plastic surgery review book, both for general review prior to going to the operating room and for the In-Service Exam. This is for good reason! Covering all major topics in plastic surgery in an accessible and easy to follow outline format, Dr. Janis also includes numerous clinical photographs and drawings that enhance understanding of difficult concepts. Each point made is well developed to ensure understanding. If there is any downside of this book as a review material for the In-Service, it is its length at 1367 (smaller) pages for the second edition. For interns or junior residents, we feel this is the best book with which to begin. Start reading early in the year to make sure you finish the entire book before the exam date. Dr. Janis and Dr. Jones also published an Essentials of Plastic Surgery Q&A Companion that presents information in a question/answer board review format that is an excellent enhancement to the main text.
This book is a great starter for medical students interested in plastic surgery, sub-interns rotating on their away rotations, as well as residents. While the book is manageable at 624 pages, topics are not discussed in quite as much detail as in Essentials of Plastic Surgery. Although it is an excellent resource, it tends to fall in-between the more comprehensive review books and the more expeditious reads that are reviewed below.
