The American Society of Anesthesiologists Advocacy Division hosts the ASA Anesthesiology Policy Research Rotation in Political Affairs, a four-week rotation in Washington, D.C., designed to allow resident physicians to experience the political, legislative, and regulatory factors that affect the delivery of patient care.
During the rotation, the resident will achieve comprehensive understanding of health care politics and policy, gain first-hand experience of a political environment, assist in day-to-day activities in ASA’s Advocacy Division, attend lobby events sponsored by ASA, create specific research projects and explore and report on new law and policy changes affecting the profession of anesthesiology. During the rotation the resident will be supervised by ASA’s Director of Congressional and Political Affairs.
The Policy Research Rotation in Political Affairs has been approved by the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) to count toward residency credit. A stipend of $5,500 is provided to offset living expenses. All 2019-2020 Resident Scholars positions have been filled.
