Abstract

Abstract Perioperative outcomes research has gained widespread interest and is viewed as increasingly important among different specialties, including anesthesiology. Outcomes research studies serve to help in the adjustment of risk, allocation of resources, and formulation of hypotheses to guide future research. Pursuing high-quality research projects requires familiarity with a wide range of research methods, and concepts are ideally learned in a dedicated setting. Skills associated with the use of these methods as well as with scientific publishing in general, however, are increasingly challenging to acquire. This article was intended to describe the curriculum and implementation of the Perioperative Medicine and Regional Anesthesia Research Fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery. We also proposed a method to evaluate the success of a research fellowship curriculum.
