Faculty Fellowship Seminar:
Careers in Anesthesiology

September 26, 2013 Seminar

The current cohort of anesthesiology faculty fellows came together on Thursday evening September 26, 2013 for an event comprised of socializing, education, and learning more about medical research. They enjoyed pizza and cookies while the faculty fellowship program director Dr. Monica Vavilala elaborated different ways to choose a project and find resources. Karen Adams, a regulatory specialist with the UW Institute for Translational Health Sciences, introduced everyone to the IRB process and the support her office provides to facilitate a successful outcome of their IRB application process. Dr. Bala Nair, an associate professor with the department, provided an introduction to the wealth of data collected daily with the help of Anesthesia Information Management Systems. Charles Spiekerman PhD., a biostatistician with the Center for Biomedical Statistics, gave a very helpful presentation on the intricacies of preparing for a consultation with a statistician. He was followed by Dr. Neels Groenewald, a current T32 Research fellow and former faculty fellow describing his experiences with clinical research on the costs associated with pain in children. He also familiarized the attendants to the educational opportunities made available by Massive Open Online Courses. Dr. Pascal Vuilleumier, the current OB faculty fellow, allowed us all to get an idea how research projects shape and evolve depending on many different factors such as data set availability, mentor changes, and other unpredictable events. As the evening came to a close everyone in attendance, from fellows to presenters, had gained a new perspective on some aspect of the trials and tribulations associated with clinical research.

April 5th, 2012 Seminar

On April 5th, 2012, the Faculty Fellowship Seminar's focus was on "Work in Progress". This seminar was dedicated to faculty fellows presenting and discussing their academic projects, which is a requirement of the faculty fellowship. Clinician and basic scientists provided feedback and mentorship to faculty fellows for their projects in an informal and supportive environment. Faculty Fellows Lizbeth Martin, Kate Gentry and Darwin Viernes gave oral presentations on their projects, which was followed by a question and answer session. The second half of the seminar consisted of breaking into groups and discussing their projects with their peers and group facilitators. This night was definitely about brainstorming and solutions to help create the perfect project.
