Head and neck anesthesiology is a rapidly evolving subspecialty. The understanding and intraoperative management of various head and neck pathologies continue to develop through collaboration with our surgical colleagues. New airway management devices and approaches to airway risk assessment continue to advance our treatments of complex pathologies. The fellow will have approximately fifty percent (or as decided with the program director) academic time. With this time, the fellow will be involved as a primary investigator or co-investigator in at least one research project (clinical or basic science), with the expectation of completion and submission for publication by the end of your fellowship year. Our electronic perioperative information system at U-M, among the most sophisticated in the country, provides a virtually limitless source of clinical data for study. The fellow will be required to submit a presentation to the Midwest Anesthesia Resident Conference (MARC). A link to our research site is provided below:


The Department of Otolaryngology also offers various research opportunities for fellow involvement:
