An institutional review board exemption was determined by the University of Wisconsin, Madison. An online survey was constructed. It consisted of 12 questions that assessed students' perceptions of which physicians were most qualified to perform various reconstructive and aesthetic procedures of the face. Physician choices were listed as dermatologist, facial plastic/ENT surgeon (FPRS), oculoplastic surgeon/ophthalmologist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMFS), and plastic surgeon (PRS). In an effort to prevent biased answers, students were blinded from knowing what specialty was conducting the study. An e-mail was sent to the dean of students at 115 US medical schools. It kindly asked the deans to forward the survey to their respective medical students and also instructed them not to mention our specialty affiliation. The study ran from November 15, 2009, to January 15, 2010. Once the study was closed, the responses were analyzed. A total of 1359 responses were used in the final analysis. Student perceptions of which physicians were most qualified to perform various procedures were reported using descriptive statistics. Changes in perceptions when comparing preclinical responses (from first- and second-year medical students) to clinical responses (third- and fourth-year medical students) were reported using χ2 analysis (P ≤ .05 was considered statistically significant).
