ASA Committee on Young Physicians
Who we are: The Committee on Young Physicians (CYP) is a group of dedicated ASA members who are in the first 8-10 years of practice and have been selected through the ASA nomination process to serve on this Committee. These members serve to support and encourage other young physicians as well as serving as a link for residents and fellows transitioning into practice.
The Committee on Young Physicians mission is to provide an avenue to grow and sustain an actively involved young physician demographic. The CYP serves as a link between residents and fellows in training and clinical practice as attending anesthesiologists in academic and private practice settings.

The Committee ensures ensure continued engagement and supports growth opportunities in this demographic.
