Anzu®, developers of the AnzuMedical™ Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration Platform™, today announced its new Residency Education & Collaboration Platform for hospitals and medical societies has been adopted by 20 leading medical institutions for their plastic surgery residency programs. The medical institutions are part of the first-ever Nationwide Plastic Surgery Collaborative Residency Network, the “RADAR Residency Network” sponsored by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and developed by Anzu®. Anzu® plans to develop additional residency education networks in collaboration with numerous medical societies and medical institutions.
The AnzuMedical™ Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration Platform™ is designed for both medical societies and medical institutions’ residency programs. The platform enables medical societies to provide educational content to residents from diverse institutions so they can share and exchange valuable information, including case studies, videos, notes and more. Hospitals may utilize the platform to facilitate education and collaboration within their own organization’s residency programs, between other hospitals and residency programs, and with medical societies and their members.
The institutions involved in the launch include:
Loma Linda University
Medical University of South Carolina
New York University
Pennsylvania State University
St. Louis University
University of California at Davis
University of Kentucky
University of Chicago
University of Cincinnati

“The RADAR Residency Network provides a unique and powerful educational resource for our residents, enabling them to not only access the comprehensive library of excellent medical content from ASAPS, but to also effectively communicate and collaborate with other medical institutions around the country,” stated Terence M. Myckatyn, BSc(Hon), MD, Professor, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Director of Cosmetic and Breast Plastic Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine.
“Our plastic surgery residents will benefit greatly from this state-of-the-art educational resource and collaboration network between medical institutions,” said Michael Hill, MD, PhD, FACS, Department of Plastic Surgery, Loma Linda University Medical Center. “Their increased access to first-rate medical content and best practices from leading practitioners should play a significant role in their continued career advancement as well as our ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.”
“ASAPS is thrilled to partner with Anzu® on this project, as it’s the first of its kind to embrace the spirit of collaboration to improve learning and patient outcomes for everyone involved. With so many prestigious institutions already on board, we know that this endeavor will change plastic surgery medical residencies for the better and anticipate that many other institutions will follow suit. It’s truly a win-win, and we are very excited to see the practice of aesthetic plastic surgery improve on a tangible scale,” explains Dr. Daniel C. Mills, President, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Barry Fernando, CEO of Anzu® explains, “The goal of this project is to leverage technology to the fullest extent possible and build a network of residency programs that can share their unique arsenals of knowledge with each other for maximum benefit.
