FAER’s Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowships provide funding to support medical students over a summer or a year in focusing on anesthesiology research, training in scientific methods and techniques, and learning how to incorporate research into a medical career.
Medical student anesthesia research fellowships are awarded through an annual application cycle. By providing fellowships to medical students with an interest in anesthesiology and research, FAER aims to expand the scientific talent in academic anesthesiology.
The summer fellowship provides medical students with an eight-week research experience within an academic anesthesiology department. During the fellowship, students participate in research and training activities, as well as clinical anesthesia activities. In addition, medical student summer fellows have the opportunity to make a scientific presentation at the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual meeting.
