MSC Key Issues, Advocacy and Policy
Currently our ASA Medical Student Component was created with the goals as stated in our mission to further the interest and role of anesthesiology in our nation's medical schools. Please download our Anesthesiology Interest Group Proposal below. This document is a good reference which has been edited by medical students around the country that will give any student decided on beginning an Anesthesiology Interest Group some background information.

Other issues which interest our medical student delegation include Residency hours and the 80 hour rule, changes in the Anesthesia residency to include more critical care time, the changing role of anesthesiologists in the OR as well as the move towards more outpatient care. For references on these subjects please visit the Resident Component website for more information on these issues.
The Medical Student Component is dedicated to promoting student involvement at all levels, from the medical school domain to the National Level. We encourage those interested to attend the ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2014 annual meeting, which will be held in New Orleans on October 11-15, 2014. For more information please visit the ASA annual meeting website.
