“A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.” – Wayne Gretzky
Recently, ASA President-Elect Daniel Cole, M.D., quoted the famous hockey star and venerable philosopher in reference to the actions and motivations of ASA in the context of modern health care. These days, it is almost cliché to comment on how the health care landscape is changing beneath our very feet. Nevertheless, the importance of adapting and positioning ourselves for the (yet-to-be-determined) future of medicine cannot be overstated.
As anesthesiology residents, we are the youngest members of our specialty and therefore have the most at stake with any changes that are made. ASA serves more than 50,000 physician anesthesiologist members. The ASA Resident Component (ASARC) focuses specifically on ASA’s nearly 7,000 anesthesiology residents, ensuring their concerns are addressed.
