    I had 2 questions about residencies in anesthesia. Most seem to be geared to private practice. Which ones are open to residents doing research and/or pursuing academia?

    I MIGHT be interested in academia, but am looking for a program to actively perform research (either retrospective or prospective CLINICAL research), as well as one that I could successfully pursue EITHER academia OR community medicine whichever I choose.

    Any suggestions on these programs? Any suggestions on those that would be opposed to this?

      you need not look hard for programs eager to have residents be involved in research. in fact, i'd say that one who demonstrates a sincere interest and potential for success in reseach may have an advantage in applying to the top departments. cornell, columbia, penn, brigham, ucsf, u pitt are all programs that i visited that are quite active in reseach endeavors and happy to have residents participate. most programs allow for a 6-month research track during the ca-3 year.

        I agree. I have noticed that big name programs are more receptive to individuals who have demonstrated interest in research (not just saying it but showing you actually have done something) and who intend to pursue it during residency.
