Researcher Portal

Welcome to the Researcher Portal

This SEA website is designed to help anesthesiologists interested in educational research by facilitating collaborations, fostering mentorships, and providing tools for a successful career as an educator and researcher. However, this site is in its infancy and we appreciate your patience as the Committee on Research under the leadership of Drs. Cladis and Deutsch develops this portal. If you would like to participate in developing materials please contact Dr. Franklyn Cladis at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

FAER Medical Student Anesthesia Research Fellowship

The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) is seeking anesthesiology departments and research mentors to host medical students for summer research experiences in 2016. The application website for the 2016 program is now open and the deadline is October 1. For more information and to apply, visit FAER.org/MSARF.

Consultants in Medical Education Research

Anesthesiologists involved in the world of medical education are sometimes involved with medical education research. Unfortunately, we often are not formally trained in this area and learn these research skills as we go through the process. There are anesthesia educators that have developed some of these medical education research skills through formal training and experience and many of these individuals are members of SEA. Some of them are willing to be medical education research consultants to a SEA member in need. This service is available to SEA members only. If you have questions regarding a research project, an idea, or an abstract, please contact Dr Cladis (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and he will select a consultant to help you.
