COLUMBUS, OH (PRWEB) JUNE 04, 2013
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has selected Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson of Donaldson Plastic Surgery for active membership. The ASAPS is the largest and most prestigious professional organization that is exclusively comprised of cosmetic plastic surgeons. Founded in 1967, the Society has maintained a strict admission process for members, who must continue to meet high professional and ethical standards throughout their careers.
In the United States, only plastic surgeons who are both board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and possess significant cosmetic procedural experience are considered for membership. Credentials are rigorously scrutinized, including medical licensure, training background, legal history, hospital affiliations, advertising campaigns and peer reviews.
“It is an honor to be included among the highly-trained and highly skilled members of this important organization,” says Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson. “I look forward to participating as an active ASAPS member while continuing my work with patients here in Columbus, Ohio.”
The mission of ASAPS is to advance the science, art and safety of aesthetic plastic surgery among its members and their patients. It supports this mission through research, education and sponsored events, promoting high ethical standards and patient safety within the aesthetic surgical community. The ASAPS also provides patient resources for researching procedures, comparing statistics, and seeking qualified local plastic surgeons.
After successfully completing the admissions process, a plastic surgeon must continue to work throughout his or her practice to maintain the ASAPS affiliation. Ongoing requirements include participation in accredited Continuing Medical Education, regular attendance at national meetings and adherence to the ethics and standards of the organization.
Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson is a native of Columbus, OH and a graduate of Upper Arlington High School. After attending Yale University, he achieved a medical degree at The Ohio State University and completed his five-year general surgery residency at Maine Medical Center. He trained in plastic surgery at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and completed an aesthetic surgery fellowship in Atlanta. With 12 years of medical education and a well-established practice in his hometown of Columbus, Dr. Donaldson exceeded the minimum requirements for membership to ASAPS. He is a diplomat of the ABPS and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). He has also received many awards and distinctions for his work with patients.
