Resident International Anesthesia Scholarship Program

The ASA Committee on Global Humanitarian Outreach (GHO) Resident International Anesthesia Scholarship Program provides support for U.S. anesthesiology residents to spend a month in a resource-poor setting. The site for the rotation will be a CURE Hospital or a GHO-affiliated site. Residents will have the opportunity to experience the challenges of delivering safe anesthesia in a low-resource, underserved area in a developing country as well as participate in the training and education of local anesthesia providers. With appropriate planning, the resident will be eligible to receive ABA credit. Covered expenses include travel, lodging, meals, visa, vaccinations and medical insurance.
