Greetings


The Department of Anesthesiology at the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County is very proud to host the Midwest Anesthesia Resident's Conference (MARC) March 16-18, 2012 at the elegant Fairmont Hotel, just steps away from Millennium Park in downtown Chicago.

The MARC is devoted to providing residents and fellows of over 30 Midwestern academic training programs the opportunity to present clinical and basic science research, as well as medically challenging case reports related to the field of anesthesiology in a collegial and nurturing atmosphere. Awards will be presented to the top three presentations in each category. Our program will also consist of keynote speakers, panels, and workshops. We will also continue the tradition of a Chairman's luncheon and a Friday afternoon program for all Chief Residents.

The MARC is a great opportunity for participating residents, fellows, medical students, and faculty to meet and socialize. The year's Saturday night reception will be held at the legendary House of  Blues and will feature food, drinks, and music.

On behalf of the Department of Anesthesiology at JHS of Cook County, we look forward to seeing you in Chicago and to another exceptional MARC!
