Residency Application

Residency is first and foremost a time for developing clinical expertise, but the basic science and clinical research within the Department adds an important dimension to resident education and provides opportunities both for residents exploring research for the first time and for those developing a career in academic anesthesiology. Research, presentation and publication are encouraged and supported at all levels. At some point during their tenure (usually during the CA-2 year) all residents are expected to present at a regional or national meeting. Presentation at meetings is actively supported academically, logistically, and financially, with multiple residents presenting each year at the Midwest Anesthesiology Residents Conference (MARC), Association of University Anesthesiologists (AUA), American Society of Regional Anesthesia (ASRA), Society for Airway Management (SAM), and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Annual Meetings.

The Department actively seeks residents with significant research experience who are interested in developing careers as physician scientists and becoming leaders in academic anesthesiology. The Department offers up to nine months of protected time during the clinical anesthesia years (three months as a CA-2, six months as a CA-3). This, ideally combined with a subsequent year of fellowship training, is meant to form the foundation of a career in academic medicine. Shorter research rotations may also be created, tailored to the resident's interest. Residents may work with members of the Department of Anesthesiology in their areas of basic, translational, or clinical research, or explore the vast array of research possibilities within the University of Wisconsin.
