Twelve resident presentations from Kendall Regional Medical Center’s residency program were accepted and presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Anesthesiology Annual Meeting in October. Anesthesia Residency Program Director Nicholas Nedeff, M.D., said that the high number of accepted submissions is an honor for the residency program.

“It’s a big accomplishment for the program, especially since we’re only 3 years old,” Dr. Nedeff said. “We had more submissions accepted than some university programs, and they’re twice our size.”

Residents and faculty members from Kendall Regional Medical Center, Aventura Hospital and Palms West Hospital collaborated on the research projects. Dr. Nedeff said that many Envision physicians and attendings oversaw the research and presentation efforts on a volunteer basis. Topics centered around improving and advancing anesthesia care.

“These submission acceptances represent our ability to move into another area within anesthesia and to make a significant impact in medicine,” Dr. Nedeff said.

Javier Lopez, M.D., Chief of Anesthesia at Kendall Regional Medical Center, is impressed with the resident class and their research submissions.

“The presentations are great exposure for the company at the annual ASA meeting in order to highlight our role in and dedication to medical education,” Dr. Lopez said.

Seven resident presentations were also accepted to this year’s American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) meeting, Nov. 15-16.
