UW Department of Anesthesiology Fellowship Programs

Fellowship appointments are available for training in basic, translational, and clinical research. The Department supports active research programs in anesthetic mechanisms, neuroscience, pain, and perioperative pharmacogenetics along with clinical research projects in cardiac and neuroanesthesia and critical care. The institution participates in the NIH funded Clinical Investigator Preparatory Program, creating additional opportunities for research fellows.

UW Medical Scientist Training Program

The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison provides integrated graduate training in scientific research and clinical medicine, leading to a combined MD/PhD degree. Our goal is to produce physician-scientists who will make major contributions to the understanding and improvement of human health. The program, drawing from the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and the UW-Madison Graduate School, works to ensure that students take full advantage of the remarkable resources and opportunities present at UW-Madison for both medical education and graduate research training.

UW Clinical Neuroengineering Training Program

The Clinical Neuroengineering Training Program is a predoc training program in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The objective of this program is to educate a new cadre of scientists and engineers to generate new fundamental understandings of neuroscience and translate these findings to clinical treatment. The training will cross traditional boundaries to develop individuals skilled in clinical, scientific, and engineering approaches to advancing neuroscience. Trainees receive Ph.D. degrees in their chosen field, such as biomedical engineering, neuroscience, medical physics, physiology, or a growing list of other fields in which faculty trainers are available.

UW Neuroscience Training Program

The Neuroscience Training Program was established in 1971. Currently, it comprises over 100 faculty members whose research interests range from molecular neurobiology to integrative systems and computational modeling. The program is designed to prepare students for careers in research and teaching. Training leads to the PhD degree in neuroscience or the MD PhD degree in cooperation with the School of Medicine and Public Health.

UW Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Graduate Training Program

The objective of the Graduate Program in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology is to equip students with the skills required to conduct state-of-the-art biomolecular, biomedical, and pharmacological basic research. The Program assists students in becoming independent investigators in these research areas.

FAER Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship Program

The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) created the Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship to encourage talented medical students to consider careers in anesthesiology research and perioperative medicine. The MSARF program offers medical students an 8-week anesthesia-related research experience and the opportunity to present research findings at the American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting.

UW Shapiro Summer Research Program

The Herman and Gwendolyn Shapiro Summer Research Program supports opportunities for University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health students to participate in full-time summer research projects under the mentorship of UW-Madison faculty members. Projects may be in any area of basic science, clinical, translational, health services, global and public health research. Students who have completed their first year of medical school and are in good academic standing may apply for the program. More than 50 projects are funded each summer. The Shapiro program is designed to educate students about the nature and process of scientific research and to develop skills in study design, methodology, statistical analysis and presentation of findings. Each student works under the supervision of a faculty investigator on an existing or new research project of the investigator.
