Department of
Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine

FFAST

Our department focuses on faculty career development to foster the next generation of leaders. Our Faculty Fellow Advanced Scholarship Training Program (FFAST) provides financial support for faculty to pursue advanced degrees in health fields outside anesthesiology to launch subspecialty teams. Faculty can earn secondary master’s degrees in fields such as business, biomedical informatics, education, clinical outcomes research, and public health. These opportunities have led to innovative research on topics such as OR management, clinical and research predictive modeling, cost savings models, and OR staffing strategies.
