Our Program

Welcome to the Stanford Cleft & Craniofacial Surgery Clinical Instructorship Program!

Plastic Surgeons who work in the field of Cleft & Craniofacial Surgery have the chance to change children's lives, often right from birth. From skull and forehead anomalies such as craniosynostosis to facial conditions such as cleft palate and cleft lip, to dental and maxillofacial procedures, our Craniofacial Surgery fellows learn about the full spectrum of craniofacial procedures under the most experienced faculty surgeons. Clinical Instructors are essential to the success of our pediatric clinics, and they enjoy ample opportunity to interact with the children and their families.
