The goal of the research track is to train an independent anesthesiologist who is capable of conducting clinical or basic research.
Rationale: Anesthesiologists who can conduct clinical research are needed to develop new methods of anesthetic care, test new drug protocols, determine safety, efficacy, and quality of care. These are anesthesiologists who bring innovation as well as publish papers expanding our understanding of anesthesiology.
Objectives: CA-3 residents in this track will spend up to six months in a clinical or basic research laboratory. Under the guidance of a trained investigator. Residents who have completed the Research Track will be expected to be able to independently design, gain approval for and conduct a research project if it is uncomplicated and not dependent on complicated technology.
