Statement of Goals:
Faculty approval required for all Anesthesia elective registration. Offered each quarter. (Limited number of visiting student participation) Students must invest four or more weeks to receive elective credit. This elective offers students with strong interest the opportunity to explore some area of anesthesiology research by participating in laboratory studies, clinical studies, or both. A number of full-time Ph.D. faculty members and many clinical faculty members participate in either basic laboratory or clinical research projects. Areas of basic investigation include ion channel structure-function relationships, regulation of cerebral and subcortical blood flow, endothelial and peripheral vascular pharmacology and physiology. Laboratory, as well as clinical study, is active in the subspeciality areas of obstetric anesthesia, cardiolvascular anesthesia, and pediatric anesthesia.
Learning Activities
Students may participate in ongoing research projects or may initiate projects of their own; students may pursue basic laboratory investigation, clinical research projects, or both. Didactic instruction includes close consultation with research advisors and weekly conferences.
Evaluation Methods
This elective is non-clinical research credit and does not count toward the 32-credit graduation requirement.
