Our residency program highly values and supports an environment of inquiry for the trainees. While traditional didactics and clinical care are cornerstones of residency training, some skill sets are best developed outside of the classroom or operating room. We believe a well-rounded consultant in anesthesia should showcase their skills and experience on a national level. Through our residents’ active participation in scholarly activity at numerous anesthesia meetings, they are provided an opportunity for personal and professional development.
Our residents are encouraged to identify a scholarly activity project from the very beginning of their training. Close collaboration with faculty mentors results not only in an enhanced fund of knowledge about the topic of choice, but invaluable skills such as professional development, public speaking, networking and leadership opportunities and communication style and delivery. Further, the residents who participate in scholarly activity experience comradery with, not only fellow anesthesia residents, but the anesthesia community at large. We are proud of our residents and the scholarly activities they participate in. These meetings also serve as an excellent opportunity to network with leaders in our field and various fellowship directors. Midwest Anesthesia Resident Conference (MARC), American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), Society of Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP), Society of Neuroscience (SNACC), Society of Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA), Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) are some of the venues that our residents frequently participate in.
