2019 Spring Conference


CLICK HERE to Register

Dear Colleagues,

The Minnesota Society of Anesthesiologists (MSA) Spring Conference is quickly approaching. This year’s conference will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at the Radisson Blu Mall of America in Bloomington. We have organized a high-yield agenda for the meeting with a variety of emerging concerns in the field of anesthesia and perioperative care.

Based on MSA member feedback, we are including practice management topics at this year’s conference. Dr. Jay Mesrobian, a widely-known expert in practice management from Medical College of Wisconsin, will be sharing his perspective this year. Closely entwined with practice management issues is the legislative process, and we will have a legislative update from our MSA lobbyist, Nate Mussell, from Lockridge, Grindal and Nauen, PLLP.

We take our member feedback seriously, and work hard to deliver what you have expressed interest in. We also try to detect emerging trends and issues in anesthesiology, bring them to your attention, and foster a medium for networking. The upcoming MSA Spring Conference is no exception, and I look forward to seeing you all there!

MSA Education Chair
