October 2008:

In October 2008, the ASA MSC held its first House of Delegates meeting in Orlando, Florida.  The meeting turned out to be a great success with over 70 delegates present and over 100 medical student members in attendance.  Dr. Jerome Modell gave the Keynote Address, and a panel of prominent anesthesiologists gave students insight on the intricacies of anesthesiology residency.  Following the House of Delegates meeting, an informal Meet and Greet session gave students the opportunity to casually meet with a dozen program directors from residency programs across the country.
