CSA Resident Research Day

Call for abstracts to the California Society of Anesthesiologists Resident Research Day
Saturday, June 13 9:00-10:30 AM

Dear CSA Members, 

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, all major opportunities for California anesthesiology residents to present original research and other scholarship, such as interesting case reports, were cancelled, including the CSA Annual Meeting and WARC. 

To help California residents, CSA will be organizing a California Society of Anesthesiologists Resident Research Day as a virtual presentation on Saturday, June 13 at 9 am. See below for more information and submission process. 

Interested residents should send in their abstracts to the CSA office by Sunday, May 24 by midnight to the google form: (https://forms.gle/gf5An3drvqELrxps7).  

A committee has been formed to organize the Research Day and review the submissions.  They are in alphabetic order: Rita Agrawal, Richard L Applegate, Eugenia Ayrian, Adam Milam, Ron Pearl, Vivianne Tawfik, and John Brock-Utne (Chair). 

We hope many of you will tune in on June 13 to learn about all the exciting anesthesia research being done in California. 

Be Well,

The CSA Resident Research Day Committee
