Cardiac Anaesthesia Research Accelerator Course

The Cardiac Anaesthesia Research Accelerator (CARA) is a comprehensive educational program purpose-built to catalyse the research careers of the next generation of anaesthetic research

Over a 5-day immersive research retreat, attendees will work alongside each other, mentors, statisticians, and senior researchers to complete a range of exciting research projects in cardiac
anaesthesia/perioperative medicine.

Each attendee will take the lead on their own project and be the first author. CARA projects will draw on sophisticated databases and use advanced causal inference models, natural language processing, or machine learning to answer important research questions. We work with a range of senior academics in anaesthesia, intensive care, and cardiac surgery to brainstorm impactful project ideas and conduct due diligence on the feasibility and publishability of all projects. Your project idea will be allocated to you based on your area of interest.

Event details:

Eighteen attendees (including 8 medical students and 6 consultant attendees, 2 CARA facilitators, and 2 dedicated statisticians with special guest Noah Greifer flying in from Harvard) will gather at our basecamp, Windform House, an architecturally-designed home situated on 70 acres of private coastal heath on the iconic Great Ocean Road, boasting panoramic ocean views, a tennis court, and an outdoor pizza oven.

The in-person component to CARA is from November 25-30, 2024. Attendees will also be required to join a commencement/social event at the Victorian Heart Hospital in March, participate in monthly project planning and statistics workshops leading up to the event, and see their projects to completion after the event. About 80% of the time and work commitment is expected to occur at the main event, but some low-intensity work should be expected before and after.
