UCSF Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care Yearlong Fellowship for UCSF Medical Students

The UCSF Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care Yearlong Fellowship will support the department’s longstanding mission to train and foster the development of the next generation of physician-scientists in anesthesiology. One fellowship will be awarded per year to a medical student interested in exploring basic, translational, or clinical research in areas that are relevant to anesthesiology and the perioperative sciences, including critical care and immunology, neurosciences and pain, bioinformatics and data science, outcomes, health equity, and implementation sciences. In addition to hands-on research, the fellow will participate in Department of Anesthesia research events, including weekly seminars and the annual Anesthesia Research Day symposium, and will have the opportunity to network with anesthesia research residents, fellows, and faculty.
