Interplast Welcomes 2009-2010 Webster Fellow Dr. Joyce Chen

Dr. Joyce Chen

Dr. Joyce Chen recently joined the Interplast team as this year's Webster Fellow. After earning a bachelor's degree from Stanford University and her medical degree from Duke University, Joyce completed ten years of surgical training which included fellowships in general surgery, craniofacial and pediatric plastic surgery, and plastic and reconstructive surgery. A medical volunteer trip to Haiti sparked her interest in international health, and helped lead her to Interplast.

Interplast has a busy year planned for her, and Joyce will not only participate as a surgeon and lecturer on team and visiting educator trips, but will also develop educational curricula and program evaluations that will have long-term impact for Interplast. We welcome Dr. Chen to the Interplast family and community, and look forward to the coming year.

Dr. Michelle Spring is Interplast's new Webster Fellow. The Webster Fellowship offers a newly trained, board-eligible plastic surgeon the opportunity to spend a year with Interplast's medical colleagues in developing countries such as Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, China, Ecuador, Ghana, Myanmar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Peru, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Zambia---performing the highest form of medical citizenship through care of those in need. 

Michelle is looking forward to her fellowship and the travel it entails.  She will be keeping this blog throughout the year to tell us more about her journey.
