The MSARF program attracts talented medical students to research careers in academic anesthesiology and perioperative medicine. Through the program, MSARF participants experience research and training activities, and are exposed to clinical anesthesia, at their host departments. The capstone of the medical student fellowship is the MSARF Symposium at the ASA annual meeting each year.
At the University of Utah, Ebert met Harriet W. Hopf, MD, and Sean Runnels, MD, who mentored him throughout the program, teaching him the principles of academic research in anesthesiology. Ebert presented his abstract “Does the UU Butyrylcholinesterase genotype predict a normal clinical and biochemical response to succinylcholine? A model for personalized medicine in anesthesia” at the 2011 ASA annual meeting.
Support Medical Students Interested in Anesthesiology
Medical students who are interested in careers in anesthesiology and research participate in FAER’s Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship program. To support these students through this educational program, make a donation to FAER.
