APSF/FAER Mentored Research Training Grant

The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) are now offering the joint APSF/FAER Mentored Research Training Grant (MRTG) to develop the next generation of perioperative patient safety scientists.

This year, those interested in pursuing the APSF/FAER MRTG will need to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) prior to submitting a full application.
