The SEA Duke Award for Excellence and Innovation in Anesthesia Education

Call for Nominations

Due Monday, June 22, 2020

The SEA Duke Award for Excellence and Innovation in Anesthesia Education was created back in 1996, thanks to a generous gift from the Department of Anesthesia at Duke University. The purpose of the award is to recognize people who have had a long commitment to teaching and have contributed positively to the advancement of teaching anesthesia to medical students, residents, and faculty. Because we at the SEA are at the forefront of spearheading educational efforts in our specialty, past recipients have tended to come from within our midst.

Membership in SEA is not necessary for consideration, though the nominating individual does have to be a SEA member.

ASA, SEA Announce Call for Nominations for New Distinguished Educator in Anesthesiology Award

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) today announced a call for nominations for the new ASA-SEA Distinguished Educator in Anesthesiology award. The award recognizes mid-career physicians who have demonstrated a substantial commitment and achievement as educators in the field of anesthesiology.

“We’re excited to collaborate with SEA on this effort, an organization that shares our values regarding the importance of education to improve patient care,” said ASA President Linda J. Mason, M.D., FASA.  “It’s important for mid-level career physicians, those who have been in practice 5-15 years, to be recognized for their contributions and achievements in anesthesiology education.  Recognizing these individuals helps to move the profession forward and serves as an opportunity for networking and continued mentorship of young educators and residents.”

Important Update Regarding 2020 Spring Meeting

After much discussion and deliberation, the Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the SEA 2020 Spring Meeting originally scheduled for May 8-10, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

 Our SEA team, like many of you, have been eagerly anticipating and preparing for the SEA 2020 Spring Meeting. We are proud of the educational and professional growth opportunity our meetings give to all who attend. Due to the recent developments and many unknowns surrounding the ongoing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) we feel our priority must focus on the safety of those who attend and the communities they serve. We have received cancellations from numerous speakers and workshop hosts who live in New York, California and Pennsylvania (to name a few) due to policies in their home institutions. Some of the policies are precluding them from gathering in groups of even 10-30 people (obviously much smaller than anticipated attendance at SEA). These unprecedented travel restrictions would most certainly compromise the quality of the education and training that SEA is known for. While these meetings are important, they simply cannot take precedence over the health and wellbeing of our members and their communities.
