"A small, friendly society based on common interest. SEA is the only organization/meeting where I have made friends with whom I have kept in touch over the years."
"I enjoy SEA because of the educational expertise of anesthesiologists who share similar problems and different solutions. I love the camaraderie of physicians who are passionate about being better teachers of our field of medicine, while maintaining our clinical skills. I feel inspired after SEA meetings!!"
"I have remained a member of SEA because it provides a supportive environment of like-minded individuals (anesthesiologists interested in education, in giving back, and advancing their careers as educators and clinicians)."
"Learning how to become a better teacher/facilitator/giver of feedback because of our exposure to educational theories which most of us never received in medical school nor residency."
"Sharing ideas with other SEA members so I do not have to reinvent the wheel on such issues as residency accreditation process, curriculum design, management of the difficult resident or faculty."
"Demonstrating to my chairperson and other faculty within my department of my commitment to become a better instructor."
"I have been an active member of the SEA since 1999. I remember my first meeting very well. I joined a workshop on “improving your competency committee” and was thrilled to learn that other programs had similar problem to our own. I came back with references, good contacts and a game plan for what to do and we did indeed improve that committee. My notes from each SEA meeting are full of “great ideas” for trying out at home. My membership in SEA has helped me to advance my career in medical education by creating opportunities for scholarly exchange of information on teaching. In addition to helping with my teaching skills, I have had opportunities to submit abstracts, present posters, give presentations and workshops. These are all skills that are difficult to learn in education circles."
