WARC is a premier opportunity for residents, students, and fellows to present work they have accomplished during their training. Each year the meeting rotates to a different sponsoring institution in the western United States and Canada. In order to allow as many residents and fellows to attend the meeting as possible, WARC does not charge any registration fee. The meeting is funded from contributions from each participating anesthesia department and from industry contributions. Stanford has hosted WARC in years past, and we regularly have residents present their work at this conference.
