Benefits of Membership
The International Association of Plastic Surgeons has a wide portfolio of benefits for its members. For more information, please fill out this form to be contacted by one of our membership representatives.
The Leading Physicians of The World
Doctors of Excellence
Our premier publication, The Leading Physicians of the World,is the driving force behind our organization. The IAPS has teamed up with the International Association of Healthcare Professionals to compile a book like no other which showcases the biographies of the world’s finest doctors. Our acclaimed Plastic Surgeons will now be featured alongside renowned doctors from every conceivable specialty.
Selection is very limited, nominating only the top 1%-2% in each specialty. This guarantees that invitation is granted only to those individuals who are experts in their field. Our stringent evaluation process is to ensure that we maintain the highest quality of doctors in our organization, as well as the most accurate results for consumers and our book.
Personalized with your professional biography and full contact information, your biographical brochures validate you as a Leading Physician of the World and are great reminders to be left events, or in your office for patients to take home.
In addition to being published in The Leading Physicians of the World, our selected Plastic Surgeons will also be promoted online. People are increasingly going to search engines to find out more about their physicians and by increasing your online presence patients will be able to easily access your information and recognize you as a Leading Plastic Surgeon in their area.
As a top doctor, your full educational and professional biography will be featured in the top pages of Google, Yahoo, and other search engines, validating your credentials and bringing in future business.
With thousands of other top doctors in every specialty, IAPS is a great place to collaborate on ideas and network with colleagues, classmates and friends from the past.
Through our state of the art online networking you will be able to chat with other members both locally and around the world. It is also a place to share information and get feedback. Here, you can create discussions, set up live meetings with certain groups, and create podcasts.
With the goal of guiding consumers to the top ophthalmologists in their area, the IAPS has partnered up with the other specialties in The Leading Physicians of the World and created findatopdoc.com and 1-866-664-DOCS. Upon acceptance into our organization, our select group of doctors will be listed both online and through our 24 hour call center.
With numerous search fields based on proximity, insurance coverage, and requested service, these two means of searches have proven extremely beneficial to both patients and our members.
Personalized Online Question and Answer forums for Consumers in Your Area
Many consumers turn to the Web for answers regarding their health. IAPS has created a way for people to get answers to those questions and increase your online presence at the same time. We have found that patients like to feel comfortable with their doctors, and through the exchange of question and answers, rapport is built and appointments are usually made within 24 hours.
Let’s say a consumer has a question on a breast augmentation. This person will go on our website, enter their zip code, and enter in their question. This question will then be forwarded to our closet member to that zip code. Each question is available for 48 hours, and if unanswered, it will be forwarded to the next closest doctor.
Once answered, the consumer will automatically be forwarded that doctors contact information and professional biography. This is a great tool which increases a patient’s knowledge on their health, but also brings new patients into your office.
Honorary Wall Plaque
Solid wood and laser engraved, the IAPS wall plaque is a personal tribute to the success you have attained throughout your career.
It acknowledges you as a top ophthalmologist in your area, and is a reminder of your great achievements.
Certificate of Recognition
Upon acceptance into the IAPS, members are awarded a Certificate of Recognition. Each certificate is personalized and contains The Leading Physicians of the World platinum seal of authenticity.
Beautifully designed, and an enhancement to office décor, The Certificate of Recognition serves as a third party endorsement of your personal and professional achievements.
Direct Mail Promotions
Increasing business is a common goal that all of our members share. To help our plastic surgeons do so, we have initiated direct mail programs which advertise our member’s services and promotions.
With access to millions of consumer lists, reaching out and getting new business has never been easier. Bring in new patients, or maintain your current clients with special deals, reminders and promotions.
Our members are continually making a positive difference in the lives of others. The IAPS and our global partners want to give back. With vacation give aways, gift certificates, and nights out on the town, our hardworking members finally get that much deserved break they deserve.
