Opportunities for Political Advocacy and Health Care Policy
We send two residents annually to the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Legislative Conference, with all 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 one resident for a month-long Health Policy elective run by George Washington University in Washington, D.C. The resident learns about the changes in healthcare and its impact on the field of anesthesiology.
