The idea of ​​this program is to invite speakers outside NYU who will bring their expertise and knowledge gained in other institutions in the field of plastic surgery. Therefore it was a great honor to have Dr. Gorana Kuka, as a plastic surgeon from Serbia be invited as one of the speakers. With her lecture titled “Becoming a plastic surgeon,  becoming a hair transplant surgeon”, residents were presented with how plastic surgeons in Serbia are educated and trained, and she tried help them how to choose their further area of interest.


By presenting the FUE technique, as an option for young surgeons at the very beginning of their career, residents were able to see the experience of Dr. Kuka, as a very young physician in the field of plastic surgery within Colic Hospital where she built entirely new department for hair transplantation. The lecture was also attended by other members of the department and it has been very well attended. Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez is an inspirational person who, as head of the residency program, is extremely dedicated to his students-residents, and tries in every way to enrich their learning.
