Program Description

Training anesthesiologists to be highly competent sub-specialty consultants and leading researchers.

Application Process

Please apply formally through the NRMP, and also submit a 1-page statement detailing your research background, possible future research interests, and an idea of your career plans to the program coordinator (Erin Wood, erin.wood@wustl.edu). It is strongly encouraged that one of the letters of recommendation also comes from a thesis advisor or research mentor.

Program Information


ASAP is an integrated 5-year categorical residency that uses a separate curriculum and is approved as an innovative program by ACGME. Over a 60-month continuum, trainees complete an internship, a residency, a clinical fellowship, and have a total of about 15 months protected for research. Promotion within the track is based on competencies at different milestones in training, rather on the usual “time-served” basis. The main advantage of ASAP is that it saves more than a year of time, versus doing all of its activities within a traditional internship, residency, and fellowship format. Candidates for ASAP should be certain that they are interested in pursuing a clinical fellowship. They also need to have a strong clinical record, in order to make good progress in the accelerated clinical curriculum.

WU Scholar

The Scholars program exists within the normal, categorical residency track, and residents in this program will fulfill all of the usual requirements of the residency. Scholars will take the 6 months of research allowed by the ABA during their clinical anesthesia training. Following their training, they are given a 1-year junior clinical faculty appointment with most of their time protected for research. Residents in this program can pursue a clinical fellowship if they wish, but it isn’t explicitly integrated into the rest of this curriculum.
