The Vanderbilt Department of Anesthesiology offers Clinican Scientist Training through the BH Robbins Scholars Program. The primary goal of the BH Robbins Scholars Program is to recruit and train the next generation of academic anesthesiologists who will shape the future of our specialty. The BH Robbins Scholars Program is named in honor of our first department chairman, Benjamin H. Robbins, MD.
Program Overview: The Robbins Scholars Program provides a mentored research experience that culminates in a two-year fellowship experience (with at least one research year). Scholars may request to participate in clinical fellowship training or additional formal education (e.g., Master of Science in Clinical Investigation, Master of Public Health, or other degree programs) offered at Vanderbilt during the latter part of the BH Robbins Program.
Robbins Scholars receive numerous benefits, including personalized mentorship and career development, research and educational support resources, protected research time, and a salary supplement during residency and fellowship.
Scholar Selection Process: Scholar candidates will be identified during the resident recruitment process based on their perceived potential for commitment to a successful career in academic anesthesiology. Final selection will occur prior to the start of the CA1 year.
