Missouri Resident Delegates Reflect on Attending ASA Annual Meeting

Four years ago, I attended my first ASA conference as a medical student with a newfound desire to become an anesthesiologist. My understanding of the field was limited to the research I was selected to present and my mentors who routinely showed me how diverse the field of anesthesiology could be. At the meeting, I remember feeling overwhelmed by the vast array of devices, pharmaceuticals, and novel research that other attendees were so graciously interacting with. I wanted to be just like them.

Four years later, I had the opportunity to attend in-person again, this time as a resident physician and MSA member. To my delight, with just a few years of medical practice, the devices did not seem as intimidating, the drugs not as esoteric, and the research not as labyrinthine. I found myself actively participating in simulation sessions to hone ultrasound skills, having productive dialogue with medication manufacturers about unintended side-effects, and snapping dozens of pictures from clinical case reports and research presentations to affect my own practice. With the MSA's backing, I was also able to serve as a resident delegate and program representative to learn about physician advocacy, political action committees, and how to serve as a leader in the field while also serving my patients. The opportunities to meet and discuss with legislators, practice leaders, and other physicians was unparalleled, and I look forward to using these connections to serve as an active member of the field with the same fervor I felt as I left my first ASA conference years earlier.

This was my first year attending the resident component of the House of Delegates meeting at ASA. It was very insightful to hear stories about other residents across the country who are working to advocate for our specialty, doing humanitarian projects, and learning about new inventions that are helping provide safer perioperative and intraoperative care for patients in underserved countries. I wasn't aware of the opportunities to get involved at the state and national level while in residency and it was interesting to see how passionate many of my collogues are about pioneering change for their residencies and anesthesia in general. I thought it was fun to meet with other residents from Missouri and get to discuss the similarities and differences we all experience as residents. 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed the keynote speaker, Senator Dr. Michelle Au, who spoke about how she transitioned from taking care of patients clinically to taking care of and advocating for patients in the senate. I thought it was very interesting to hear how she used her knowledge as a clinical anesthesiologist to create better health policies for patients in her state. Often times, we can feel like we don't know enough about the healthcare system to advocate for our patients when in reality, we as physicians, have a unique and often times broader understanding of the short comings of the system and how they directly impact the patients we care for everyday. In that regard, the talk was inspiring and I hope to use my knowledge of medicine and healthcare to advocate for my patients too.  

 

As always the MSA component, meet and greet (Saturday evening) was a blast and I think it's a huge opportunity for medical students, residents, and attendings to get together to network and collaborate. It's what I recommend the most to medical students who are looking to apply to residency's in Missouri and residents looking to network among within Missouri.

I had a great time in New Orleans for the ASA2022 conference, and I was honored to represent Missouri and MSA as a resident delegate for the annual resident house of delegates committee. Before the Sunday meeting, I flew in Saturday morning went to support my co-residents during medically challenging cases. Not having a case of my own this year, I then wandered throughout the exhibition floor, speaking with vendors who have interesting and innovative equipment. I met with a few groups that were recruiting as I am getting ever so close to graduation by the day.  I rounded out the day by stopping by the MSA Missouri Night where I met familiar as well as new faces all representing the state that I call home.

On Sunday morning, I woke up early and had breakfast at a nearby café before heading to the Resident House of Delegates meeting. I met briefly with our fellow Missourians and headed into the meeting having never done this before. Our meeting included topics highly relevant for any anesthesiologist including advocacy, charity, and research. We discussed many ways to get involved at the state and national level as residents and beyond. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Michelle Au was fantastic. She brought humor and kindness to her talk as she encouraged us to get involved in advocacy as anesthesiologists and physicians so that we can lead the way for healthcare from the operating room to the court room.

I encourage others to take the opportunity to go to the ASA annual conference and highly recommend residents to take the opportunity to represent at the national level as a resident delegate.
