‘What’s been the highlight of ANESTHESIOLOGY 2016 so far?’

There are still lots of sessions and events remaining at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2016, but we thought we’d ask ASA members what has stood out for them so far.


1025-bosnjak“I’m a basic scientist, so it’s been attending the Academy of Research Mentors in Anesthesiology and interacting with the FAER organization to help mentor young anesthesiologists interested in conducting both clinical and basic research.”

Zeljko Bosnjak, Ph.D., FAHA
Medical College of Wisconsin



1025-kado“It’s been nice seeing all my former colleagues.”

Julie Kado, M.D.
Northwestern Medicine, Chicago




1025-ong“I’ve always enjoyed the Problem-Based Learning Discussions, because you get to meet so many other people and see how they practice. You get to ask questions one-on-one with the experts.”

Dennis Ong, M.D.
University of Saskatchewan



1025-gnanendran“I’m a community hospital anesthesiologist, so I like to come here to make sure I’m not deviating from the normal practice of anesthesiology — just to make sure I’m doing everything right. Second, I come here to meet friends and just to learn more.”

Kandiah Gnanendran, M.D.
Windsor Regional Hospital
Windsor, Ontario, Canada


1025-pandya“Everything overall — it’s been a great experience. But probably the highlight has been seeing all the different poster presentations. The PBLDs and abstracts have all been really good. And, of course, seeing the vendors and all their new equipment.”

Neel Pandya, M.D.
Metro Health Medical Center
Cleveland, Ohio


1025-pujra“David Chestnut’s Rovenstine Lecture was one of the most fantastic lectures I’ve ever heard. I’ve been in practice in anesthesia for 35 years, and it showed us so much about professionalism, how we’re all human beings, how we should try to be the best human we can be, and not just the best anesthesiologist. He touched my heart because he was so honest.”

Devi Pujra, M.D.
Schuylkill County Medical Center
Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania
