“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, […] we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.”

So opens Dickens’ tale of the French Revolution. We might not be facing such a dramatic or violent upheaval, but health care and medical education in the United States are facing changes the likes of which we have never seen. Stemming from espoused public dissatisfaction with physician competence and medical outcomes, our government has demanded accountability from graduate, postgraduate and continuing education programs. In response, the accrediting agencies for these entities have introduced numerous innovations to measure and ensure the successful training of doctors. The Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) is prepared to meet these challenges and address the coming changes.
