Medical Student Fellowships

FAER’s Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowships (MSARF) program provides funding to support medical students over a summer in focusing on anesthesiology research, training in scientific methods and techniques, and learning how to incorporate research into a medical career.

Summer Program 2020: IMPORTANT UPDATE

The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Leadership (FAER) has been closely following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on medical student education and research infrastructure. In consultation with the Academy of Research Mentors in Anesthesiology (ARMA), we have made the painful decision to cancel the FAER Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship (MSARF) for the summer of 2020.

FAER MSARF is a competitive program and the students who matched this year are highly accomplished. Over the next few months, the FAER Board will consider opportunities to engage the students selected for MSARF in opportunities to further their interest in anesthesiology and research. In light of these changes, we would like to recognize and applaud the students who were selected in 2020.

Summer Program

The summer fellowship provides medical students with an eight-week research experience within an academic anesthesiology department. During the fellowship, students participate in research, training and clinical anesthesia activities. In addition, medical student summer fellows have the opportunity to make a scientific presentation at the ASA's ANESTHESIOLOGY® annual meeting.
