The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA)
by Eric DeHorta
As a board-certified anesthesiologist, I consider my professional membership in the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) one of my most important medical associations, and I proudly support the goals of this organization. Since its inception in 1905, the American Society of Anesthesiologists has worked to promote advancement in the field of anesthesiology, to improve the overall quality of patient care, and to enhance the knowledge and accomplishment of its members. Originally established as the Long Island Society of Anesthetists, the organization of physicians adopted the name New York Society of Anesthetists in 1911. In 1935, the group changed its name to the American Society of Anesthetists, and in 1945, the Society finally took on the current name, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, reflecting the association’s growth from a local to national community. Initially headquartered in New York City, the ASA relocated to Chicago in 1947, and then in 1960to Park Ridge, Illinois. As of 2008, the ASA boasted 43,000 members and more than 100 full-time employees. In order to provide continuing education opportunities to its many members, the American Society of Anesthesiologists regularly publishes live and on-demand webinars on a wide array of medical subjects. 2010 ASA courses included Physician Burnout: Know the Signs, Symptoms and Solutions; Ethics CME Webinar: Ethical Considerations in DCD Organ Donation; and The Essentials of Chronic Pain for Coders.
In addition to contributing to the overall development of the field of anesthesiology by ensuring the highest level of training in its members, the American Society of Anesthesiology works directly with aid organizations in other countries to facilitate the dissemination of crucial medical innovations worldwide. The Global Humanitarian Outreach arm of the ASA supports anesthesiologist training and education, advocates for long-term academic partnerships, and encourages collaboration between medical institutions with similar goals throughout the world. One of the organization’s primary goals lies in recruiting volunteer anesthesiologists to provide medical services in disaster areas. Without access to adequate anesthesiology, many life-saving procedures become impracticable. Therefore, it is of primary importance that qualified anesthesiologists volunteer their skills in disaster areas, such as post-earthquake Haiti. If you are an anesthesiologist and want to volunteer your time and expertise for these crucial humanitarian missions, please visit the ASA’s Global Humanitarian Outreach website at asahq.org/GHO.
