Resident Academic Career Development Track
The Resident Academic Career Development Track 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. Each Scholar will receive $10,000 per year salary supplement for three consecutive years. This is contingent upon the successful completion of each stage of the Resident Academic Career Development Program as defined in the Program Timeline. The Scholarship payments will be independent of the normal PGY salary.
Pending satisfactory clinical and academic progress, as well as successful fulfillment of licensure, credentialing, and regulatory requirements, it is anticipated (but not guaranteed) that the Department Chair will recommend appointment of the Research Scholar to the UAB Anesthesiology faculty following the completion of residency training. The Scholar will then be expected to serve as a faculty member in the department of anesthesiology for at least two years and perform research in the basic or clinical sciences as well as appropriate clinical and educational duties.
