MARC is an annual conference, sponsored by the Association of Midwest Academic Anesthesia Chairs (AMAAC). This year, Chicago welcomed 600 conference attendees, with representatives and residents from all 33 AMAAC institutions in attendance. Residents from each clinical-academic center participated in numerous research competitions during the conference.
Six of our residents presented six studies at this years’ Midwestern Anesthesia Resident’s Conference (MARC) and five studies were awarded prizes! This year’s tremendous success was as a result of the amazing effort put forth by our residents, Jill Belrose (PGY1), Sebastian Borowiec (PGY2), Matthew Chong (PGY3), Michael Chow (PGY4), TJ Leeper (PGY4), and Luke Jakobowski (PGY3), as well as the tireless efforts of our faculty advisors, Postgraduate Administration and Resident Research Team.
On behalf of the entire department, we are thrilled to be able to congratulate all of this year’s winners for putting forth such a wonderful showcase of resident research. We would also like to thank all our faculty advisors and mentors, and Postgraduate Administration and Resident Research team –this success would not have been possible without you!
In addition, special thanks to Drs. Kate Ower and Jon Brookes for their continued support of the residents and for acting as Judges at this year’s competition. And many thanks to Dr. Angela BuilesAguilar for providing excellent feedback and support during the presentation practice sessions.
