The NYAM Section on Anesthesiology presented the 2013 Anesthesiology Residents’ Night on September 25, 2013. Clinicians and Researchers from Anesthesiology programs in the tri-state area gathered to hear top residents present their clinical and scientific papers representing original research.
After a lively cocktail hour and dinner, during which more than 70 registrants had an opportunity to view 22 posters representing 10 departments of anesthesia, 11 residents gave oral presentations of their research. Prizes were offered in both categories based on decisions by a group of judges with input from the audience. The judges were Drs. Farida Gadalla, Hugh Hemmings, Ingrid Hollinger, Andrew Karlin, Philip Lebowitz, Kathryn McGoldrick, Ram Roth, and David Wlody.
Winners for the best oral presentations were as follows:
1. Stefan Samuelson, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai, New York, NY. “Simulation as a set-up for technical mastery: Can a high-fidelity virtual warm-up improve resident performance of fiberoptic intubation?”
2: Arun Kalava, New York Methodist Hospital, Brooklyn, NY. “Typing skills of Physicians in Training.”
3: Eric Cheon, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY. “Changes in Operative Volume at a Tertiary Care Center: Implications for Evening Anesthesia Staff.”
