Missouri Resident Delegate Reflects on Attending ASA Annual Meeting
As someone who had never been to the ASA conference, but had been to several, smaller regional conferences, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at the scope and magnitude of ASA, and being a part of the Resident House of Delegates was a highlight of the weekend. It is an excellent opportunity to be a part of the specialty and connect with residents from across the country regarding the issues facing not only our field but also the unique aspects of anesthesiology training, and the advocacy efforts underway for the betterment of physicians and patients alike.
It was an honor to represent my program and Missouri at the national level, and I am incredibly grateful to MSA for their support along the way. I also enjoyed the revered "Missouri Night" and the opportunity to meet and connect with anesthesiologists from around the state and also catch up with faculty and staff from my training institutions. At the conclusion of ASA, I left knowing that I will continue to be a part of both the state and national societies throughout my career, and I am very lucky to be able to call Missouri and the MSA home and be a part of the family. I highly recommend all residents attend ASA at some point during their training, and if they can, attend the House of Delegates to continue to give a voice to our trainees and drive the practice of anesthesiology into the future.
