We had an outstanding showing from our resident/fellow contingent at the 43rd annual Gulf Atlantic Anesthesia Residents’ Research Conference (GAARRC) this year! The conference was held in Jacksonville, FL April 7th through April 9th, 2017, and was hosted by the Mayo Clinic. GAARRC is designed to create an environment where resident physicians can speak about their research interests and activities in a low-key atmosphere without stress. This annual, professional meeting focuses on presentations by resident physicians from anesthesiology programs based in the Southeastern region of the United States.
Our group swept the Case Presentation category with Sindhuja Nimma, MD taking 1st place, Scott Wasilko, MD taking 2nd and Rhae Battles, MD coming in 3rd!
In the Original Research category, Claudia Sotilla, MD took 1st place and Rob Stoker, MD received an honorable mention.
Congratulations to all who participated and thanks to the faculty who attended and judged as well as those who served as mentors to the residents for their presentations!
