The Pioneering Women in Reconstructive Surgery (PWRS) Program
There are only three female surgeons for every 1 million people in low-income countries.
The Pioneering Women in Reconstructive Surgery (PWRS) program is a partnership between ReSurge International and SkinCeuticals, a L’Oreal company, to advance first-generation women reconstructive surgeons in low-income countries across the world.
Together, we created the Pioneering Women in Reconstructive Surgery (PWRS) program to support women through surgical training, leadership development, mentorship, and networking.
