California Society of Anesthesiologist is proud to announce a Virtual Anesthesia Resident Research Day on the June 13 at 9:00 am. Although many Universities and departments of anesthesiology are doing online presentations for their trainees, we believe this is the first ever State-Wide virtual resident research day in the US.

We have 14 presenters who will get 5 minutes to discuss their power point presentation, followed by a 1-minute question and answer period.
