In 2013, the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) offered for the first time the FAER Mentored Research Training Grant in Health Services Research (MRTG-HSR), in partnership with the Anesthesia Quality Institute. The purpose of the MRTG-HSR, in addition to providing career development for early-career physician anesthesiologists, is to enable future independent investigators to create new knowledge that improves health for the individual, improves the value of the care delivered to the population and reduces health care costs.
May Hua, M.D., Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at Columbia University Medical Center, received the first MRTG-HSR in 2013. The work Dr. Hua recently completed through her FAER-funded study, “Assessing end-of-life care needs among critically ill surgical patients,” and related research enabled her to apply successfully for a career development grant from the National Institutes of Health, an NIH K08. In fact, she received the prestigious Paul B. Beeson Career Development Award from the National Institute on Aging and the American Federation for Aging Research.
