Western Anesthesia Resident Conference 2013

May 10-12, 2013, Albuquerque, New Mexico

The Western Anesthesia Residents' Conference (WARC) is held annually and provides an opportunity for residents to present their research and challenging cases. WARC was established in 1963 at the University of California, San Francisco under the guidance of Stuart Cullen and Edmond Eger.

This year, 18 of our residents and 1 of our pediatric fellows presented at the Western Anesthesia Residents Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We are extremely proud of all of the residents and fellow that participated. Next year WARC will be hosted by Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles from May 2 - May 4
