About Us

Formed in 1995, the CAS Residents’ Section creates programming for residents at the annual CAS conferences and beyond. We act as a unified voice on the behalf of residents to address specific issues and concerns.

Goals:

  1. Facilitating a community of Canadian anesthesiology residents
  2. Connecting Canadian anesthesiology residents with the CAS
  3. Representing Canadian anesthesiology residents at the CAS
  4. Creating programming relevant to anesthesiology residents
