ASA Global Scholars

The ASA Global Scholars Program will provide a travel stipend to the ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2017 annual meeting for emerging leaders of our specialty in low- and middle-income nations where the specialty is in its infancy.

In many of these countries, the anesthesia risk is 1,000 times greater than in the United States.

The training is enormously necessary, too. For example, Uganda’s 36 million citizens have access to only 22 physician anesthesiologists.

Your support of the Global Scholars will enable them to bring home new knowledge and to build bridges with colleagues in the U.S. and around the world.
