Frequently Asked Questions
If I am a member of the International Association of Plastic Surgeons (IAPS), am I also a member of the International Association of Healthcare Professionals?
Yes. The International Association of Plastic Surgeons is a subdivision of the International Association of Healthcare Professionals. IAHCP selects Top Physicians in each specialty, in order to give patients a full selection of top doctors to choose from for every aspect of their health.
I received a letter from the International Association of Plastic Surgeons. Does this mean that I am a member?
No. Receiving a letter simply means that the IAHCP Marketing and Research Department has identified you as a candidate for the International Association of Plastic Surgeons (IAPS). You are invited to complete a phone interview with one of our account directors, who will determine if you are qualified for membership.
How is an individual selected as Leading Physician of the World and Top Plastic Surgeon?
The IAHCP Marketing and Research Department nominates top physicians based on data collected from a variety of different resources such as education, medical affiliations, consumer reviews, and more. In addition to individual selection, our active members have the ability to nominate peers, colleagues, mentors and associates.
Who nominated me?
Unless we indicate that you were nominated by an IAHCP/IAPS member, or patient, you were not nominated, but selected by our Marketing and Research Department.
How do I become a member?
The International Association of Plastic Surgeons is for Plastic Surgeons ONLY. All necessary licensing information will be necessary for any candidate to be considered. You must complete the Enroll Page or fill out the form that was sent to you. If you were not preselected your information will be reviewed by our board and you will receive an answer within two weeks. Once we receive your completed application, an IAHCP representative reviews your information and contacts you via telephone to conduct a short interview. Upon completion of the interview, the representative will state if your membership has been approved and then outline the details of membership if you are selected as a Leading Plastic Surgeon in your area.
I donít feel comfortable mailing or faxing in my application. Do you have an online application?
Yes, please fill out the form located on our Enroll Page.
How long should I wait to be interviewed?
Due to the lengthy review process we take before our selection, you can expect to be contacted by phone between two weeks to a month after we receive your online or paper application.
How much does it cost to be included?
There is no cost for a basic listing in The Leading Physicians of the World. Your listing is an honor and a great consumer resource, guiding patients to top plastic surgeons in their area.
What are the different types of membership programs?
