The department is involved in cutting-edge research in basic and clinical sciences, as well as in outcomes, education, and simulation. Work is funded by the National Institutes of Health, by industry, and by internally supported studies. Many of our faculty members are engaged in active research projects, and they encourage resident participation. Residents frequently present their scholarly activity at local, regional, national and international conferences.

Research being conducted at URMC by the Anesthesiology Department provides many opportunities for residents to get involved. Department research spans from the basic science to clinical and outcomes research. Our faculty conducts research over a variety of domains including coagulation, critical care, pain/regional anesthesia and respiratory physiology along with how molecular science and patient outcomes are associated with anesthesia.

Residents can get involved in research on multiple levels. At a minimum, each resident is required to complete a scholarly project. Many of our residents present these at the annual Midwest Anesthesia Residents’ Conference or the NYSSA regional resident’s meeting. Some resident elect to spend one month rotations engaged in research. For the select few, we offer the opportunity to weave your research training right into your clinical training. The Resident Research Track was designed to accommodate those residents who do not want to wait until their third year of training to think about research (or until fellowship). Let us know if this interests you during your interview day—we would love to invite you back to meet our research faculty and see our labs.
