Resident and Student Research

To apply for a research elective complete an Anesthesia Resident Research Elective Form and submit it. It will be evaluated by the Residency Training Committee and it needs to be approved prior to booking your elective block. The Residency Program Director will notify you about the outcome of your application. To apply for a research elective you should have a well defined research question, a research mentor (a staff faculty member) learning objectives for the elective and it is best to have REB approval prior to doing the elective. This way, you can make best use of the time and actually collect data (if applicable) during your elective. Please submit your form well in advance of your planned elective to ensure enough time for it to be reviewed.
