We look forward to welcoming you to the electrifying city of Las Vegas and are confident this meeting will be a memorable experience for all-solid education, stimulating professional interactions, a celebration of history and, of course, Vegas! Register now at Resident and Fellow Events at the 2015 Spring Meeting O n behalf of the ASRA Board of Directors, this year's Spring 2015 Scientific and Education Planning Committee Chair, Dr. Brian Sites, and the ASRA Resident Section Committee, we welcome and encourage all residents and fellows to attend ASRA's 40th Annual Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Meeting. This year's meeting will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, from May 14-16, 2015, and will feature several interactive lecture panels, hands-on workshops led by many of the leading experts in the field of acute pain medicine, and unique networking opportunities for all residents considering fellowship training or residents and fellows seeking job opportunities. Our Resident and Fellow Educational Program will commence on Saturday morning with a continental breakfast and an opportunity to interact with fellowship directors nationwide. Subsequently, you will have the opportunity to attend educational lectures featuring upper extremity, lower extremity, thoracic, and truncal interventions utilizing ultrasound. These lectures will be followed by our highly regarded interactive ultrasound workshop with live models. This workshop, led by ASRA regional anesthesiology experts, is offered only to our residents and fellows; it is a unique opportunity to learn the spectrum of ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia procedures, including supraclavicular, interscalene, infraclavicular, sciatic, psoas, femoral, adductor canal, TAP, paravertebral, popliteal, saphenous, and ankle blocks, among others. Every year, residents and fellows across the nation praise the value of these educational lectures and workshops, and many regard them as the highlight of the entire meeting! During the afternoon session, we will present the Resident of the Year and the Resident Section Committee Chair Awards. The Resident and Fellow Educational Program will conclude with a featured panel of ASRA expert speakers on practice management topics, including perspectives on academic and private practice, transitioning to an attending physician, and fellowship training for regional anesthesiology. Many of these lectures will be in the format of a panel discussion, and your participation with questions and comments is always welcome. Anish Doshi, MD Chair, ASRA Resident Section Committee In addition to the Resident and Fellow Educational Program, Dr. Sites and the Scientific and Education Planning Committee have also planned a remarkable conference program, which you are all highly encouraged to attend. We hope this program will help guide your future path with vital information that is not typically provided during your training. It will also provide you with the opportunity to interact with many well-recognized leaders in the field. Please spread the details of our meeting dates and program to your Department's residents and fellows, and we look forward to seeing you all in Vegas!
