In May 2017, the American Society of Anesthesiologists launched the Fellow of the American Society of Anesthesiologists™ (FASA) designation program. The FASA designation is ASA’s highest acknowledgment that recognizes years of dedication to exceptional education, leadership and commitment to the specialty. ASA Active members who meet specific qualifications and criteria are invited to apply for the FASA designation. Achieving the FASA designation recognizes you as a leader dedicated to excellence in the field of anesthesiology to your patients, your practice and your specialty.

Participation in the Massachusetts Society of Anesthesiologists (MSA) leadership, education and advocacy opportunities helps qualify Active members for this prestigious designation.

Full details on eligibility, qualifications and the FASA application can be found here.
