RECENT EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES
The Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery or PSCS, is a professional medical society dedicated to patients' safety and physicians' continuing education in the field of cosmetic and aesthetic surgery in the Philippines.
It was founded in 1972 and to date has over 90 active cosmetic surgeons. The PSCS is an affiliate society of the Philippine Medical Association (PMA) and is an organization that represents Cosmetic Surgeons. Members are specialists in their own field who acquired skills and knowledge in the science of surgical aesthetics by undergoing formal subspecialty training in cosmetic surgery.
The PSCS, conducts monthly Scientific & Business Meetings as well as annual local and international conventions with live-surgery workshops.
The mission of the Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery or PSCS is to provide comprehensive and safe aesthetic enhancement through cosmetic surgery by well-trained and board certified surgeons. Its vision is to be the leading organization of cosmetic surgeons in Asia and the world.
Cosmetic surgeons undergo training in a surgical specialty before they can be accepted to sub-specialty cosmetic surgery fellowship training at the Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery (PSCS).
Trainors are by themselves board certified cosmetic surgeons and are highly qualified and respected by local and international organizations of cosmetic surgeons.
Throughout history, beauty has been a part of the well-being of all humanity, and belongs to all mankind. No special group or person may claim ownership of beauty. It is an essential nature of being human.
Aesthetic or Cosmetic Surgery is dedicated to the perfecting of beauty. In keeping with the free development of all scientific thought, and because of the extremely specialized nature of the field of surgical beautification, we declare this specialty as autonomous and independent of any other area of surgery.
Cosmetic Surgery will not be subject to the judgements, regulations, or opinions of any other specialty. This self-determination of these surgical professionals who choose to dedicate themselves to the perfection of beauty, will not accept the interference of organizations representing other specialties, or their members.
This constitutes a declaration of our rights to best practice our field, dedicating our highest effort to this elusive and demanding ideal.
