The Anesthesia Foundation is a non profit organization founded by a group of concerned anesthesiologists in 1956 to provide low interest loans to residents in anesthesiology who were in need of financial assistance.
ASAPAC is the political component of the American Society of Anesthesiologists—a separate fund within ASA devoted solely to permitting anesthesiology to participate in elections involving the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. In some states, ASAPAC is also able to participate in gubernatorial election.
ASA members have a long history of contributing to those in need. Countless members volunteer their professional skills in the far corners of the world. In the midst of unspeakable disaster, anesthesiologists respond generously with time, money, and support. The ASA Charitable Foundation (ASACF) and Committee on Global Health (CGH) aligned to advance their missions to bring safe, quality anesthesia care worldwide.
The APSF's Mission is to improve continually the safety of patients during anesthesia care by encouraging and conducting:
- Safety research and education;
- Patient safety programs and campaigns;
- National and international exchange of information and ideas.
AQI was established by the American Society of Anesthesiologists in October 2008 to facilitate practice-based quality management through education and quality data feedback.
For over 30 years, Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research has been dedicated to developing the next generation of physician-scientists in anesthesiology. Charitable contributions and support to FAER help fuel the future of anesthesiology through scientific discovery. Funding priorities include: Research, Education, and Training.
Many ASA members have specialized clinical, research or educational interests, and hence, a variety of subspecialty societies exist. here is a natural synergy between ASA and many of these subspecialty societies – that ASA members find value in both a strong ASA and strong subspecialty societies. With this perspective in mind, ASA leadership has made it a priority to collaborate with affiliated subspecialty societies. Seven subspecialty societies have representation in ASA’s House of Delegates and the ASA Committee on Specialty Societies has representation from the leadership of these subspecialty societies.
The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) has been the global organisation uniting anaesthesiologists for the past 60 years. Their mission is to increase access to safe anaesthesia around the world and improve patient outcomes. The ASA is a valued member of the WFSA and the largest Member Society. ASA members contribute to WFSA leadership and the delivery programs as key members of our Board, Council and Committees.
The goals of the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology are to collect and preserve literature and equipment pertaining to anesthesiology and to make available to the anesthesiology community, others in the medical profession and the public the most comprehensive educational, scientific and archival resources in anesthesiology.
