MSARF Symposium


The Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship program facilitates research opportunities for talented medical students interested in careers in academic anesthesiology. Medical student fellows can choose to attend the MSARF Symposium at the ANESTHESIOLOGY® annual meeting.

The MSARF Symposium showcases research projects conducted by medical students in anesthesiology laboratories across the nation. During the first half of the three-hour forum, medical students present posters featuring their research. In the second half, a select group of these medical students also give oral presentations.

Through the MSARF Symposium, medical students:

  • Learn more about the American Society of Anesthesiologists through participation in the national meeting
  • Meet and interact with researchers and other leaders in the specialty
  • Present research findings to a national audience
