The American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) is one of the largest subspecialty organizations in the field of anesthesiology. ASRA’s mission is to advance the science and practice of regional anesthesia and pain medicine. Approaches to pain management have evolved dramatically over recent years. It is now widely accepted that the etiology of pain is multifactorial and the best approach is multidisciplinary, with incorporation of strategies from the fields of anesthesiology, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and psychiatry.
The ASRA Resident/Fellow Section Component (RSC) was founded in 1995 to encourage resident interest in regional anesthesia and pain medicine. The ASRA RSC is very active in planning and implementing an educational program for both the Fall Pain and Spring Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine meetings. The educational programs include a resident-fellow forum, resident-fellow boot camp and problem-based learning discussions. The RSC also hosts an annual fellowship program director’s reception at which residents and fellows who are interested in pursuing a fellowship in pain medicine and/or regional anesthesia are able to meet with current fellowship directors. Starting this fall, we will work toward providing our inaugural job fair for all residents and fellows during this meeting, with aims of bringing opportunities for future academic and private practice openings in chronic pain, regional anesthesiology and acute pain medicine to our ASRA members.
