Resident Scholar Program

 The FAER Resident Scholar Program provides selected anesthesiology residents with the opportunity to attend the ASA ANESTHESIOLOGY® annual meeting each year.

By attending the ASA annual meeting, FAER resident scholars are able to:

  • Present research at a paper poster session during the FAER/eSAS Research Day.
  • Identify educational, scientific and political issues facing the practice of anesthesiology.
  • Benefit from early involvement in the ASA by having direct interaction with leaders of the specialty and other anesthesiologists.

The FAER Resident Scholar Program is often a resident’s first exposure to a national scientific meeting with multiple scientific and educational sessions. Resident scholars participate in activities during the FAER/eSAS Research Day. They also have the opportunity to attend the American Society of Anesthesiologists Resident Component’s activities.

Participate in the Resident Scholar Program

The goal of the FAER Resident Scholar Program (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.

Each year, on a rotating basis, FAER invites approximately 60 ACGME-accredited anesthesiology programs to select an academically promising resident to participate in the FAER Resident Scholar Program. FAER provides educational grants of $1,000 each to these anesthesiology departments to help offset the costs of this opportunity.

There is no application process for the FAER Resident Scholar Program. FAER will notify the selected anesthesiology programs by late spring of each year.
