Anesthesia

RESIDENTS TAKE HOME TOP AWARDS

This past weekend was eventful for UNMC Anesthesiology. Not only did we match 11 outstanding candidates (more on that later), but had an outstanding showing at the Midwest Anesthesia Resident’s Conference. 
A little background.  The MARC is the third largest anesthesia conference held in the United States. It sits behind only the ASA conference in October and the PGA in New York in December. Depending on the year, attendance may exceed the PGA. Residents may submit case reports or original research for presentation. All presentations are then evaluated by a panel of judges and awards given for each category. UNMC had 10 residents present at MARC this year and 3 came home with top awards
