Academic Caucus

The power to influence the direction of our specialty and the ASA is substantially improved by engagement of members of academic anesthesiology. The purpose of the academic caucus, formed in 2015, is to establish a forum at which academic anesthesiologists can voice their opinions regarding issues facing our specialty and our society. The agenda of the caucus is defined by the Director and Alternate Director for Academic Anesthesiology.

Target Audience:

  • ASA Members in Academic Medicine. Invite sent to the entire SAAAPM Membership.
    • The Association of Academic Anesthesia Chairs (AAAC) representing the Chairs of the academic departments.
    • The Association of Anesthesiology Core Program Directors (AACPD) representing ACGME designated core program directors.
    • The Association of Anesthesiology Subspecialty Program Directors (AASPD) representing the currently recognized subspecialty program directors.
