The 2015 ASA Global Scholars Program

The ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2015 annual meeting marked the launch of a new program designed to bring emerging leaders in anesthesiology from low-resource settings to our meeting. Participants will share their perspectives and be granted the opportunity to learn about the newest developments in the specialty and to build a network of international colleagues. These global scholars will be the educators, department chairs and national society presidents where anesthesiology, as a medical specialty, is in its infancy.
