The specialty is well served by the questions and proposals raised by the authors of these two important publications. We believe current ACGME program requirements and ABA criteria for entering its examination system, along with ACGME and ABA interests in accommodating well-designed, exceptional curriculums on a case-by-case basis, allow individual residents and program directors to craft personalized curriculums that can provide strong research-oriented training experiences and be integrated throughout anesthesiology training programs. Proposals to further expand research experiences during residency training or to require dedicated research time in anesthesiology subspecialty training programs will be debated further in the coming year.
