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 ANESTHESIOLOGY® annual meeting, FAER resident scholars are able to:

  • Hear the latest advances in anesthesiology from leaders in the specialty.
  • 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 at the annual meeting including workshops, scientific sessions, exhibits and refresher courses. They also have the opportunity to attend the American Society of Anesthesiologists Resident Component’s activities.

Participate in the Resident Scholar Program

Each year, on a rotating basis, FAER invites approximately 60 ACGME-accredited anesthesiology programs to select an academically promising CA-2 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.
