Opportunities for Political Advocacy and Health Care Policy

  • We send two residents annually to the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Legislative Conference, with allDC Trip expenses paid by the department.  At this conference, residents learn about the advocacy efforts of the ASA and have an opportunity to meet Senators, Governors, and other legislators to learn about important issues facing our specialty.
  • Each year we sponsor on resident for a month-long Health Policy elective run by George Washington University in D.C.  The resident learns about the changes in healthcare and its impact on the field of anesthesiology.
