According to the ACGME guidelines, residents may dedicate up to six months of their training to research. In the tradition of training academicians, Hopkins encourages utilization of this time. Residents who submit a research proposal and are approved may spend up to six months of their CA-3 year pursuing their research interests. In order to optimize this time, minimal OR call is assigned during this rotation.
Our faculty members are among the most prolific academic anesthesiologists in the world and are always welcoming to residents who wish to get involved in research. Residents are encouraged to present their findings at national and international meetings. Please see below for a sampling of recent research projects:
"Evaluation of Learning and Retention of American Heart Association (AHA) Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Protocols"
"Evaluating One-on-One Teaching versus One-on-One Teaching and Self-Study Module for Anesthesia Machine Checkout"
"Quality of Randomized Controlled Trials of Postoperative Epidural Analgesia"
"Continuous monitoring of cerebral blood flow autoregulation during cardiac surgery in adults with near infra-red spectroscopy: preliminary results"
