The ASA Committee on Global Humanitarian Outreach sponsors a Resident International Anesthesia Scholarship Program that sends CA-3 U.S. anesthesiology residents to a low-income country for a month. The goal of the program is to embed the resident into the clinical and anesthesia educational program in order for them to more fully understand the challenges and realities of anesthesia care around the world. The residents have an opportunity to interact with local anesthesia, surgical, nursing and other colleagues and participate fully in educational activities. Our goal is to introduce residents to the global anesthesia crisis and motivate them to be a part of worldwide solutions to these complex problems. The following report from four of the 2018-19 scholars gives a glimpse into the value of this experience and the larger work of the GHO committee.
