The University Hospital Ghent has a close cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine and Health Science of Ghent University. The main tasks are patient care, teaching, scientific research and providing services to the population.

The department of Plastic Surgery not only provides high clinical care but also trains doctors and specialists. Interns rotate on a regular basis on our department and doctors are trained to become plastic surgeons.

Our department has a high international reputation in certain subdisciplines and specializations of plastic surgery. Foreign plastic surgeons are very keen in visiting our department for a shorter or longer period to obtain postgraduate training and experience.
