Does anyone know of research programs that actually focus on anesthesia? I have looked at nursing obstructions programs, and am amazed out how many don't cover clinical research or very little practice focus research. A few phd nurses I know tell me clinical research isn't really in the field of nursing. NP's and CRNA's, and all other clinical specialties are involved in diagnosis, treatment, drug prescriptions, drug administration, etc. Why would more programs not focus on the more clinically applicable research. I have found a couple of programs that do research I find interesting, but I don't like their location and their tuition would be over 100 k. My in state universities focus on things that aren't applicable in anesthesia at all. Any CRNA phd's with any suggestions? I have started a DNP program, but would love a more research focus program. I am much more interested in being able to directly apply research to improve clinical practice.
