Other Funding Opportunities

 Clinical Anesthesia Fellows:

The Global Anesthesia Division is pleased to work closely with other clinical divisions in the department and offer global health rotations to fellows in the training programs for Regional Anesthesia, Pediatric Anesthesia, and Critical Care Anesthesia. Other subspecialties are welcome to get involved as long as a project can be established with an international partner. The clinical fellow is responsible for finding a faculty preceptor for their international rotation. Acquiring funding is competitive; opportunities are listed below:

Learning Resource Center

An online learning platform developed at the onset of travel restrictions and the pandemic, the LRC continues to evolve and grow its courses.  Each course is a collaboration between partners from variably resourced practice settings to ensure appropriate context and group-sourced solutions for clinical problems.  Interactive courses are designed to be delivered through asynchronous independent study, or with live instruction, to maximize availability and effectively transfer learning into practice.  All courses are open-access and free.  The Oxygen Series course used live webinars and reached over 9000 learners from 145 different countries helping providers as they cared for COVID-19 patients with respiratory failure.  The LRC is always looking for new collaborators for content curation, course design, live instruction, and editorial assistance.
