Educational Symposiums are a vital part of keeping those in the medical field informed and up-to-date with the latest medical technology and developments. Dallas based board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rod Rohrich has dedicated much of his career to organizing and participating in such symposiums and educational events and has chaired upwards of 100 symposiums. 2018 will see this number rise even more with a schedule in February and March that includes 3 plastic surgery symposiums; 2 of said symposiums will be organized and chaired by Dr. Rod Rohrich himself.
The three symposiums Rohrich will be participating in are the Baker Gordon Educational Symposium, the Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting, and the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting; the 2 latter of the 3 are the events that he will be involved in on an administrative level. All three of these events will feature Dr. Rod Rohrich participating in panels, giving presentations, and other duties.
Rohrich has a medical education from the Baylor College of Medicine and completed his residency program at the University of Michigan Health System where he also served as Chief Administrative Plastic Surgery Resident. Additionally, Rohrich received specialized training in pediatric, craniofacial, hand, and microvascular surgeries during his time as a Fellow at both Oxford University in England and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. Rohrich has been with the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center as a professor and board-certified plastic surgeon since 1986. He has also been practicing with the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute from 1986 as well as affiliations from many different area medical facilities.
Despite being busy with education and practicing both reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr. Rod Rohrich frequently engages in humanitarian efforts. Each year he provides support for a medical student planning on entering Family Medicine in his home state of North Dakota. Rodrich has also been involved in efforts in Dallas to provide immunizations for impoverished and homeless children in and around the area. Abroad he has not only performed surgery on children with extensive burns and deformities, he has also taught surgeons in third world countries these procedures so they can help additional children with these medical problems. Altruistically he may be most known for volunteering his time to provide reconstructive surgery to women who have had mastectomies due to breast cancer.
