As the specialty of pediatric anesthesia continues to grow, so does the number of trainees with interest in the field. With this in mind, the SPA Board of Directors approved a special interest group (SIG) for pediatric anesthesia trainees at the SPA 2016 annual meeting in Colorado Springs, CO. This SIG was created by a handful of anesthesia residents and pediatric anesthesia fellows in collaboration with the SPA Board of Directors. The primary goal of this group is to encourage medical students, residents, and fellows to actively participate in SPA sponsored activities and become familiar with SPA’s role in the advancement of the specialty.
This SIG has successfully incorporated trainees into various SPA committees and task forces, contributed to the quarterly newsletter, as well as held social gatherings and meetings. More recently, we have started a webinar series for all the trainees.
