PSEN at Plastic Surgery 2012

PSEN recorded more than 60 hours of panels and lectures at Plastic Surgery The Meeting in New Orleans at the end of October. We were also on site with a booth in the exhibit hall and video news crew. (You can see our news coverage in the video above).

Some of the clinical panels and lectures recorded are being turned into online CME courses, but most of them will be made available on PSEN for free to members. We’ll be rolling these out on the site in batches over the coming month. The first batch —  covering blepharoplasty and fat grafting in facial and breast procedures are online to watch now!

Plastic Surgery 2012 also marked the debut of the PSEN app for iPad/iPhone®. The app allows users to view videos and presentations, read case reports and complete CME courses in one user-friendly app. The app also features the International Clearinghouse of Meetings with an option to add an event to your device’s calendar. Attendees of Plastic Surgery The Meeting test drove the app at the PSEN booth in the exhibit hall. Each tester was also entered to win an iPad. Learn who won by watching the video below. The app is available for download in the app store. Search PSEN or click here.
