2019 Spring Meeting

2019 Spring Meeting

Integration and Diversity: Creating Diverse Teams, Building Exceptional Leaders

2018 Spring Meeting

April 26-28, 2019

Target Audience
This meeting is intended for medical students, residents, and faculty physician educators in anesthesiology and related disciplines who are interested in how technology, economics and legislation impact medical and anesthesia education, as well as how to improve teaching skills and faculty development.

About This Meeting
We look forward to a keynote address by Renee Navarro, Vice Chancellor of Diversity and Outreach for the University of California San Francisco, and one of the few anesthesiologists serving in such a role. She will share with us the current and potential future state of anesthesiology as we continue to build diverse teams. We further welcome nationally known speakers on the topics of student and resident admissions and education, integrating advanced practice providers, and assisting and welcoming members of the LGBTQ community. We are exceptionally pleased to welcome three women anesthesiology departmental chairs to share their thoughts on women’s leadership in anesthesiology.

We plan a practical approach to this topic – tips to avoid unconscious bias in admissions and daily practice, and how to understand and embrace unfamiliar pronouns!

NEW THIS YEAR – Join us on Sunday morning for a “Best of the Year” session! Collaboratively generate a take home list of the best education Readings, Podcasts and Resources from 2018.
