The Mission of the AASPD

  1. To provide a “home” where Program Directors of ACGME-accredited subspecialty fellowships (currently Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology, Critical Care, Obstetric Anesthesiology, Pain Medicine, Pediatric Anesthesiology and Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine) can interact to discuss, evaluate and act on matters of common interest.
  2. To provide a milieu where Program Directors within their own subspecialty can generate ideas that they can share with the other subspecialties.
  3. To encourage access and exposure to, and exchange of ideas with, Departmental Chairs and Core Program Directors at the SAAAPM Annual Meeting.
