Secure your best and brightest future
The ANESTHESIOLOGY annual meeting has been reinvented to better meet your needs. We’re excited to share with you the following ways you can make the most of your time:

Kick off ANESTHESIOLOGY 2018 at the Opening Session and explore lessons your peers have learned on the way to practice. 

Have questions about fellowships or want some guidance on your career path? Be sure to explore our new fellowships and career paths panel. You’ll have the opportunity to engage with physician anesthesiologists who have dedicated their careers to cardiac (adult and pediatric), critical care, obstetrics, pain medicine, pediatrics and regional.

That’s not all. Take care of your networking and educational needs as well!

Grow your professional network
We know how important networking is to further your career, so we have set-up designated events to ensure you have adequate time to make those valuable connections.
  • Welcome Reception: engage with your peers, young physicians, ASA leadership, industry and annual meeting supporters while enjoying beverages and delicious hors d'oeuvres.
  • Meet and Greet with Residency Programs: Take advantage of an exclusive opportunity for 3rd and 4th year medical students! Program Directors and residents from across the country will be on hand to showcase their programs and answer your questions.
