Research Description: The Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at Nationwide Children's Hospital seeks medical students interested in observational clinical studies, retrospective record review, multi-institutional clinical registries, and health services research. Areas of emphasis in current research include clinical monitoring, use of novel pharmacological agents, outcomes of ambulatory and inpatient surgery, tools for risk stratification, management of acute and chronic post-surgical pain, and risk adjustment in pediatric surgery. Recent projects including medical students have addressed the volume-outcomes relationship in pediatric heart transplantation, the role of enteral nutrition initiation in outcomes of ECMO support, the safety of general anesthesia for diagnostic radiological imaging, and children's use of health care services according to presence of chronic pain. Flexible opportunities are available for participation in summer research projects, including data collection, data analysis, literature review, and manuscript development. We strongly encourage students to lead or significantly contribute to manuscript writing and submission. Over the past 7 years, all students working with the department have had the opportunity to be included on authorship of at least one publication. Students will work under the supervision of the department research team and the faculty involved on the specific project.

Specific areas of Research Emphasis: Anesthesia/Surgery; Pediatrics/Adolescence; Public Health Research
