Developing the next generation of physician-investigators.

Notes from the nonprofit

When you use science to answer a question or solve a problem, you ultimately discover and define a new way forward. That’s why the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research, a 501(c)(3), is dedicated to advancing medicine through anesthesia education and research. In order to develop new knowledge that leads to better outcomes, and to help patients improve the quality of their lives, FAER provides research grant funding and programs to anesthesiologists, anesthesiology trainees, and medical students. These opportunities are designed to provide the resources, time, training, and mentorship needed to launch a successful career in academic medicine. FAER invests in the people who will ensure that the future of anesthesiology achieves as much progress as the past.

The FAER Resident Scholar Program provides academically promising anesthesiology residents with the opportunity to attend the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ (ASA). Each year, FAER invites approximately 60 ACGME-accredited anesthesiology programs to select a resident to participate in the Resident Scholar Program, beginning with institution members of FAER’s Society for Anesthesia Education and Research (SAER). The goal of the RSP is to support research among residents by providing an opportunity to present their work among peers and established scientists in the specialty of anesthesiology.

In collaboration with Early-Stage Anesthesiology Scholars (eSAS), FAER provides a full day of research sessions at the ASA Annual Meeting, ANESTHESIOLOGY®.

This event consists of the paper poster presentations given by participants in FAER’s Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship (MSARF) and Resident Scholar Program (RSP). The symposium provides these early-career physicians an opportunity to discuss and receive feedback on their research projects from both their peers as well as the senior physician-scientists moderating their presentations.

Sessions organized by eSAS will precede FAER’s MSARF and RSP poster presentations, creating a day fully dedicated to the growth of early-career physician-scientists.
