Additionally, this forum is EXCLUSIVELY for attending/resident physicians and medical students interested in anesthesiology.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I have responded to everyone via PM. If you haven't heard from me then send me a PM. There has been a slew of requests so I have been a little slow to get to them all. Give me until the end of the weekend to sort through them all. Thanks.

The queue for the forum should be relatively caught up. If you have not heard from me or if there are any questions, please PM me. Remember the forum is for the ASA, not the ABA:confused:.

Out of curiosity-> Why ASA and not ABA? I let my ASA membership lapse bc Im Pain Mgmt and can only keep up with so many societies (therefore Im in ASRA, AAPM and the like). But I like trying my best to keep up with whats going on in the Anesthesia world *just in case*...

I would have to say ditto to this question. Seems that many of us are not members for a whole host of legitimate reasons.

I've PMed you a few times and sent you my info... still can't see the private forum. Either I'm not verified or I'm blind (i'm assuming its in the subforum headings right?).

Other than the anesthesiology club, is there another anesthesiology private forum? If yes, I want to sign up for it. Please send me info. Thank you!

Why is ASA membership required for access to the private forum? I understand that it is one way to confirm a physician's identity. But, surely there are others.

I never received anything of value for my ASA membership for the 10+ years I was a member, and I haven't missed membership even once in the last five years since I gave it up.

I'm in the USA, so the question hardly applies to me: but what about our foreign colleagues?

If there's a suitable workaround (like an ABA number), please let me know.

I wondered the same thing. ASA membership seems like a fairly meaningless qualification. They would not let me in either even though I've been an anesthesiologist for 35 years and thought I might have some worthwhile perspective to contribute.

Follow-up request for access sans US ASA number. I'm a US based CRNA pretending to be an oversees doc to get to all of your secrets.

Sorry I missed the forum due to unexpected circumstances, please was the forum recorded and is there a way that I could still get my questions answered?
