The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research provides educational opportunities and career development for anesthesiologists, residents and medical students. Advancing anesthesia education is core to FAER’s mission, and it is core to many of FAER’s programs.For medical students interested in careers in anesthesiology research, the Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship (MSARF) program is an important starting point. For anesthesia residents actively beginning careers in academics and research, the FAER Resident Scholar Program provides a gateway to the latest knowledge in the specialty. For anesthesiologists who serve as mentors, investigators and educators, FAER’s mentor academies and various programs offer valuable information you can apply to your career.
