Research and Scholarly Activity

The Department of anesthesia has a robust program of research and scholarly activities resulting in multiple yearly presentations at national and regional conferences. While every resident must complete one scholarly project during training, many of them participate in multiple presentations. Our residents have been awarded for their projects and in 2016, the Director of OB anesthesia, Dr. Seth Landa, received “Best Obstetric Anesthesia Presentation” and tied for “Best Paper” at the International Anesthesia Research Society Meeting. The hospital has a strong research department, statistician and library staff to help with projects. Listed below are our scholarly presentations for 2016-2017.
