The Reed O. Dingman Society is the alumni society of the Section of Plastic Surgery at the University of Michigan.
Active membership in the society is bestowed upon plastic surgeons trained through the University of Michigan Plastic Surgery Residency Program, faculty, clinical fellows, and those individuals who have a special importance to, or affiliation with the University of Michigan Plastic Surgery Training Program or to members of the Reed O. Dingman Society.
The Dingman Society is the active correspondence link between the University of Michigan Plastic Surgery Program and alumni members.
We host an annual dinner during the American Society of Plastic Surgeons meeting. Biennially on odd-numbered years, a 2-day scientific meeting is typically held in June to coincide with resident graduation.
To further perpetuate the ideals of excellence and innovation in plastic surgery, education and research that were so well-exemplified by Dr. Dingman, the Reed O. Dingman Society limits its membership to those who have met very specific criteria. These are detailed in the organization's bylaws.
