NEW THIS YEAR! The Minnesota Society of Anesthesiologists is accepting abstract submissions to the 2020 Annual Conference, held September 19-20, 2020 at the Radisson Blu Mall of America in Bloomington, MN.

We are pleased to announce several exciting changes to the upcoming Minnesota Society of Anesthesiologists (MSA) conference, including transitioning to a yearly Annual Conference to be held on September 19-20, 2020. The official meeting agenda is under development and will be posted to www.msaconnect.org once finalized. Notable components of the 2020 conference will include a hands-on workshop (including pediatric regional and ultrasound techniques), problem based learning discussions (PBLDs), and an inaugural poster session.

At this time, we encourage you and your trainees to submit an abstract for consideration of inclusion at the 2020 MSA poster session. Suitable topics include medical research, quality improvement projects and medically challenging cases. Accepted abstract authors will present their posters at the 2020 MSA Annual Conference and a prize will be awarded for the conference’s best poster presentation. Please follow the link below to access the portal for submission of your abstract for consideration of inclusion in the conference.
