Research Training

Residents in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities for both clinical and laboratory-based research available at Mayo Clinic. Additionally, all residents participate in quality and efficiency projects, resulting in Silver Level Certification in the Mayo Clinic Quality Academy.

After completing six months of clinical anesthesia training, you may dedicate up to six months for research during your CA-1 through CA-3 years. These efforts result in national presentations for all residents and peer-reviewed publication for most.

Clinician-Investigator Training Program

The Clinician-Investigator Training Program prepares you for a career in academic medicine and allows development of research skills during training. In addition to standard anesthesiology residency training, an 18-month laboratory research rotation and graduate-level courses are required. Residents enrolled in this program also participate in an institutional clinician-investigator seminar series.

The application for this program may be submitted at any time. It is not necessary to declare an interest in this program when you apply to the Anesthesiology Residency. For more information about the Clinician-Investigator Training Program, contact the program director.

Clinical and translational research training

The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCaTS) is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program. The CTSA program addresses the development and implementation of national standards and best practices for translation from basic discovery to clinical and community-engaged research.

CCaTS offers education and career development programs in clinical and translational science that span the career spectrum.
