Symposium ParticipantsOn Saturday, September 27, 2014 the UC Irvine Health Anesthesiology Interest Group (AIG) hosted the 3rd Annual California Anesthesia Medical Student Symposium at the UC Irvine Medical Education Building. Registration was opened for students who were interested in pursing the exciting field of anesthesiology. Medical students were arriving from over 20 states around the country for this year’s symposium.

The focus of this year’s symposium was on the future of anesthesia and how the field will be impacted by current changes and trends. The day began with lectures from Dr. Joseph Rinehart and Dr. Richard Kelly, from the UC Irvine Health Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care. They spoke on mid-level practitioners and the new Affordable Care Act, respectively. The symposium then moved on to Dr. John Shin from UCLA discussing future job prospects for upcoming anesthesia residents and finished with Dr. Gerry Manecke from UCSD discussing what operative room technology might look like in 10 years. From here, the attendees spread throughout the UC Irvine Medical Education Building Symposium Participants to attend various hands-on workshops. The workshops ranged from perioperative ultrasound to advanced airway to vascular access. Dr. Zeev Kain, chair of UC Irvine Health Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care gave a keynote lecture about the increasing role of the Perioperative Surgical Home (PSH) initiative in the US.

The day ended after a very popular residency fair with faculty and residents from eight California residency programs. The 3rd Annual California Anesthesia Medical Student Symposium was well received and medical students now are even more excited about their upcoming interview season.

We are looking forward to what next year's symposium will bring!
