Research and Return to Sea
After two years of COVID-19 mitigations and virtual
conferences, academic life at NMRTC San Diego is
starting to return to normal. Residents were able to
present their research at the American Society of
Anesthesiologists, American Society of Regional
Anesthesia, and Western Anesthesia Residents
Conference.
With COVID-19 restrictions being gradually lifted in
the setting of vaccine opportunities, residents had the
opportunity to go to sea on board the hospital ship
USNS MERCY for several weeks of training. The MERCY
routinely deploys to support Humanitarian Assistance
and Disaster Relief (HADR) missions and is primarily
staffed by healthcare providers from the Navy.
This past year, residents LCDR Adam Brust, MD, LT Erica

Looking Forward
While COVID-19 has brought and continues to bring
challenges, through careful mitigations the staff and
residents here at NMRTC San Diego continue to move
forward, with residents taking initiative on research,
academics, and humanitarian assistance while also
completing a challenging residency.
