Research Fellowship

The Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) offers a post-residency Research Fellowship to candidates who intend to pursue a career in academic anesthesia. This program provides an opportunity for fellows to conduct clinical and/or basic science research in areas related to pediatric anesthesia and pain medicine while working under the guidance of a research mentor.

One and two-year research fellowships are offered. It is expected that the fellow will participate in the design, planning, and conduct of the research. While past research experience is not a requirement, it is desirable.

The didactic component of the program includes attendance at research seminars, lectures, and departmental Grand Rounds. Topics covered include bibliographic software management systems, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, clinical trial design, biostatistics, issues related to research integrity, and basic science teaching tailored to the fellow’s needs.

Fellows are expected to present the results of their research at departmental research-in-progress rounds, and at one or more local, national, or international meetings. At least one scientific manuscript must be written by the completion of the training.

Fellows will also participate in clinic work, and up to 20 per cent of their time may be devoted to patient care activities to help maintain their clinical skills. Therefore, only candidates who have already been trained (preferably at SickKids) in paediatric anesthesia will be considered.
