Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine

Advancing the science of anesthesiology by generating new knowledge is part of the mission of the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Consistent with this goal, many of our faculty are actively involved in a wide array of ongoing clinical and laboratory research projects. 

Center for Anesthesia Research Excellence (CARE)

CARE exists to simplify and streamline the research process for department investigators.  By bringing together existing expertise in all aspects of clinical research, from study start up, to execution, close-out and publication, CARE can help Anesthesia department members make their research endeavors more efficient, successful, and compliant with research regulations. 

For more information please visit the CARE website.

Trainee Engagement

Participation in research is an optional part of residency and fellowship training. Residents may spend half of their CA-3 year engaged in research, or spend up to eighteen months of a four-year anesthesia residency conducting laboratory or clinical research. In addition, the NIH Anesthesia Center Grant awarded to the Harvard Anesthesia Departments provides two-year fellowships to support residents spending at least 80% time in research. These fellowships begin after the CA-3 year, and research may be conducted in laboratories of the four Harvard Anesthesia Departments (BWH, Massachusetts General, Beth Israel-Deaconess, Children's), other hospital-based laboratories, Harvard Medical School, or MIT.
