ASA Global Scholars

ASA Charitable Foundation Global Scholars Program

Now its fifth year, the ASA Charitable Foundation Global Scholars Program will provide support for young leaders in the specialty from low- and middle-lower income countries to participate in ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2019 in Orlando, Florida.  In many of these countries, the anesthesia risk is one thousand times greater than the United States. The training need is enormous; for example, Uganda’s 40 million citizens have access to only 84 physician anesthesiologists.

The program provides an opportunity to support the professional development with fewer resources and the development of the medical specialty of anesthesiology overseas.

Program features include:

  • Travel and lodging stipend
  • Registration for ANESTHESIOLOGY 2019
  • Registration for a subspecialty meeting
  • Optional observership at a U.S. teaching hospital
  • Presentation at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2019

We are now accepting applications for the 2019 ASA Charitable Foundation Global Scholars Program. Candidates should be a young practicing physician (under 40 years of age) and practicing in a low- or middle-income country as classified by the World Bank.
