What is the PVPS Fellowship?
The PVPS Fellowship provides a well-rounded education from head to toe which will include ample time in our on-site operating rooms as well as exposure in the clinic and the medical spa. Our fellow will have the opportunity to work alongside each member of our team and independently. They will also participate in journal clubs and research projects as well as attend local and national conferences.
PVPS is committed to an engaging and educational experience to help prepare our fellow to be self-confident in all aspects of aesthetic surgery!
Meet Fellowship Director Dr. Robert Burk III
Robert W. Burk III is a Northeast Florida board-certified plastic surgeon who performs cosmetic procedures and reconstructive surgeries. He is highly sought-after for his vision of balanced body aesthetics.
Meet Fellowship Co-Director Dr. Christopher Bates
Dr. Bates has had the honor of practicing plastic surgery on all three coasts. He utilizes the different ideas and techniques that he’s learned along the way to bring the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art, and — most importantly — safe plastic surgery to his patients.
"I was fortunate enough to match into an aesthetic plastic surgery fellowship under the direction of a former president of The Aesthetic Society (formerly the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). During that time, I not only honed in on my surgical skills but also learned invaluable lessons in clinical patient care and running a private practice. Here at PVPS, we not only have six surgeons for the fellow to work side-by-side with, but also an extensive staff (including advanced practice providers, business management, and medical billing) with endless resources to help educate the fellow in all aspects of aesthetic plastic surgery. It is our way of giving back and advocating for extensively trained, fellowship-educated, aesthetic plastic surgeons."
