Anesthesia Scholarship

Just like you, I have been there collecting mountains of student loan debt all so I could fulfill a dream of practicing anesthesia. Understanding the stress of paying it off and the lack of scholarship opportunities I had to create a platform to give back. is dedicated to creating those opportunities for you. Anesthesia Scholarship 2021 is excited to announce our Annual Anesthesia Scholarship in partnership with Envision Physician Services, and Odyssey Staffing.

Last year we were blown away by the responses of having you create anesthesia infographics. Our mission for the scholarship has always been to provide debt relief and highlight the incredible new generation entering our anesthesia community. This is our fourth scholarship and we’re ready to mix it up again. 

Anesthesia is a hands-on education. Sure there is never-ending studying, but many of the techniques we use in everyday practice were learned from experiences in the hospital, and many of them came from a mentor, attending, or friend passing on their knowledge and expertise.

Stuff you can’t find in a book.

This year we want you to share some hot tip, trick or technique that you have incorporated into your practice. Maybe it’s how you use a band-aid to secure an NG tube. Or taking the connector for a 6.5 ETT, a 32 Fr nasal trumpet, and Mapleson circuit to ventilate an obstructing patient undergoing an EGD and no, it doesn’t go in their nose. It could be as simple as how to set up and insert an IV. Things that can only be taught if someone showed you.

And if you can’t think of anything, ask a preceptor or an experienced provider if they have any cool hacks they can show you (they can’t enter, but you can). That way you learn something new and can share it with us and maybe win!

Last thing – Since this is about sharing, all entries will be shared on social media and in video format. 

Good luck!
