Excellence in Education

ASA is committed to lifelong learning each and every year, but 2022 stood out for the continued success of enduring products like SimSTAT, ACE and SEE, impressive growth in new online offerings like POCUS, and some new entries that will set the standard for years to come like Anesthesia Toolbox and PeRLS. Here are just a few highlights from among our many educational resources:

ASA Meetings - An Evolution

We worked hard to evolve our meetings to provide a variety of options to meet the diverse needs of our members since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, ASA hosted more than 50 in-person, virtual, and hybrid meetings, including the first in-person LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE since 2019. We also returned to hosting revenue generating events partnering to hold more than 20 events at the ASAHQ Conference Center in 2022.

Record-Breaking Media Coverage

Media and Public Outreach

From advocating for physician-led care and preserving the highest-quality anesthesia care for our nation’s Veterans, to record-breaking coverage on the scientific research presented at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022, ASA’s coverage in top-tier national and local consumer and trade media was unprecedented.

In 2022, we secured 4,169 media placements that reached a potential audience of 7.3 billion. Top placements included The Wall Street Journal, TIME Magazine, Yahoo! News, U.S. News & World Report, Reuters Health, Bloomberg News,, Huffington Post, and Allure Magazine.

Intersociety Collaboration

Collaboration continued with our 53 component societies, 12 affiliated subspecialty societies, and 13 international societies.

  • ASA held specialty-focused “meet-ups” at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022.
  • We re-signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with the Japanese Society of Anesthesiology and the Korean Society of Anesthesiology.
  • South Dakota, Alabama, and Utah were added to the Unified Dues Program in 2022 and we received a commitment from South Carolina to join the program in 2023, which brings a total of 49 of our 53 components that will be on unified dues.
  • We hosted the largest ASA Charitable Foundation Global Scholars program ever at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022, supported by a grant from Edwards Lifesciences Foundation and in partnership with the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA).
