Early-Stage Anesthesia Scholars

Early-Stage Anesthesia Scholars (eSAS) is a nascent community led by trainees, for trainees. eSAS serves the interests of early-career anesthesiologist scientists, providing an academic home for developing scholars in anesthesiology.

Their objectives include:

  • Fostering peer and senior mentorship, in both career and scientific topics
  • Supporting the needs and interests of young professionals interested in  academic careers in anesthesiology
  • Enhancing peer networking and collaborative opportunities and encouraging the sharing of enthusiasm and ideas among its members
  • Developing and implementing strategies – at an institutional, regional, national or international level – that support retention of anesthesiologist-scientists in a research-oriented career track and reduce the attrition of motivated scholars at all career stages.

eSAS seeks to provide a community of scholars that will become the next generation of leaders in our field, with membership open to all junior faculty, fellows, residents and medical students who are pursuing a career as an academic anesthesiologist.

Check out the Early-Stage Anesthesia Scholars website to learn more about the resources and support they provide.

Dr. Keith Vogt, a T32 Postdoctoral Scholar in our department, serves on the eSAS Executive Council and may be contacted with questions about the organization at vogtkm@upmc.edu.
