In 1983, after graduating from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry, Dr. Foster attended Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Upon completion of his Doctorate in Medicine, he was awarded a research fellowship at Temple University Hospital through the Department of Head and Neck Surgery- Otolaryngology. Thereafter, he completed his internship in surgery as well as his four-year residency in Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania. This esteemed institution, established in 1915 by the Mayo Clinic, has thrived and expanded in Northeast Pennsylvania, drawing from a two hundred mile radius.

After completing this intense and highly competitive residency, Dr. Foster was appointed to Geisinger’s academic staff in the Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department. During the following years, he achieved board certification in, Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery, as well as, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

His fellowship was under the auspices of his preceptor, the internationally renowned E. Gaylon McCollough, MD FACS, at the McCollough Plastic Surgery Clinic in Birmingham, Alabama. Accredited by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, this highly competitive and esteemed fellowship provided a uniquely intensive surgical experience in facial cosmetic surgery.
