The Committee on Problem-Based Learning Discussions (PBLD) invites submissions for the ANESTHESIOLOGY 2017 annual meeting PBLD program planned for Boston. In Chicago this past October, 99 cases were scheduled for two presentations, and nearly all sessions sold out. Each case was presented twice to maximize the opportunity for attendees to participate. There was lively debate and discussion at the tables. All PBLDs were scheduled over a one-hour period with a maximum of 11 participants and a moderator. The Foreign Language PBLD program was also expanded at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2016 to include sessions in Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese. Eleven foreign language sessions were attended by meeting participants this year. For 2017, the committee will again continue the open-call process for both traditional and foreign language PBLDs. Submissions in each of the meeting tracks are being solicited, including ambulatory anesthesia, cardiac anesthesia, critical care medicine, fundamentals of anesthesia, geriatric anesthesia, neuroanesthesia, obstetric anesthesia, pain medicine, pediatric anesthesia, perioperative medicine, regional anesthesia and professional issues. Submitted cases should only have one moderator who must be at the faculty or attending level. For the past four years, fellows have been allowed to submit cases together with an attending. We will again provide this opportunity for fellows. At the time of the presentation, both attendings need to be present to moderate the PBLD.
