Research Opportunities

The UAB Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham offers many options for residents to participate in scholarly research.  Two programs have been established to assist residents in reaching their individual research goals. 

Whether your long-term goal is to become an academic anesthesiologist and productive physician-scientist, or you simply want to participate in a research project during your residency, we have the resources available to help you succeed. 

Resident Mentored Research Experience Track (RMRET)

This track is designed for residents with an interest in academic activities who are willing to work toward the goal of completing a successful research project during their residency.  Up to six residents per class will be mentored to conduct basic, translational, or clinical research projects that have a high probability of leading to presentations at national or regional meetings, or publications.  Prior research experience is not a prerequisite. 

Resident Academic Career Development Track (RACD)

This option is designed for residents that want to pursue a career in academic medicine.  As many as two residents per year shall be appointed to the three-year Anesthesiology Resident Academic Career Development Program.  The Research Scholarship will begin at the start of the recipient's anesthesiology residency training at UAB.
