The Anesthesiology Institute sees research technique education as a top priority. Research topics include. but are not limited to: ethics, human subject protection, statistics, study design, data collection, abstract and manuscript composition, presentation, and participation in peer-reviews of scientific submissions.
Additional opportunities for education through orientation sessions, weekly Outcomes Research Conferences, CA-1 Research Seminar, and Annual Resident Research Day (featuring a distinguished visiting professor with recognized research credentials) are made available to residents within the program.
The academic productivity of our residents is encouraged and tracked using our Academic Portfolio, which incorporates complex literature, research skills, written presentation, and oral presentation. Teaching interventions encourage resident development to match resident expectations.
In addition to the education and support provided to the residents, a three or six month period of dedicated research with the CA-3 and the Department of Outcomes Research is available for the residents. During these three or six month intervals, the resident will participate in on-going protocol, data collection, and immersion into the studies that will take place, showcasing what has been learned through the residency program. Scheduled didactic education in research topics is reinforced through mentorship by the Department of Outcomes Research. Each resident who selects dedicated research time as a CA-3 is encouraged to present one, or multiple, abstracts and publish manuscripts used in impact, peer-reviewed publications.
