SNACC Education Committee: Challenge and Achievements

I believe all subspecialty societies related to anesthesiology and critical care have incorporated education as an important part of, or a strategy to fulfill, their mission statement. The Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (SNACC) is no exception and regards the education committee as one of its key tools to “advance the art and science of the care of the neurologically impaired patient.” However, SNACC may be unique in the composition of its members who are not entirely and exclusively clinical anesthesiologists. Neuroscientists, basic science researchers and neurointensivists comprise an important part of the membership. Also, about 8 percent of members in SNACC are trainees, which create further diversity in the level of interest in education material. This adds to the responsibility of the education committee to fulfill part of the educational needs of trainees but not create the “too preliminary for us” impression for the more expert members.
