This fellowship is intended for mature, highly motivated candidates who are enthusiastic about working wholeheartedly in a multidisciplinary environment.
Our post-doctoral research training fellowship program has one- or two-year curriculums. Trainees choose a mentor from a variety of program faculty and develop a research proposal in conjunction with the mentor’s funded project(s).
Trainee research proposals must advance the field of anesthesiology that may include, but not limited to, topics relevant to: critical care medicine, perioperative anesthesia, anesthetic mechanisms of action, and pain management.
Under the supervision of an advisory committee, the trainee conducts the research with the guidance of the faculty mentor and will present results at national/international meetings and write and publish manuscripts.
By the end of the fellowship, trainees will be expected to submit their own proposal for extramural funding. Additional didactic training is available, if it is determined by the advisory committee that the trainee would benefit from such an experience.
The post-doctoral research trainee will spend the majority of their time focused on conducting research and will receive a stipend (and health insurance, if needed) commensurate with the number of years of previous post-doctoral training.
For trainees that are credentialed MDs (licensed in NY), every attempt will be made to place them into a clinical position for 20% of their time (one day/week) to maintain clinical skills, as well as to experience the life style of a physician scientist. Such clinical time will be compensated by the appropriate clinical practice.
Participation in departmental-, school-, and university-wide research seminars is expected, as well as attendance at monthly journal clubs where translational topics are presented and discussed, and in which all trainees, residents, fellows, and faculty take part.
