About us

ASA About Us


Formed in 1934, the Australian Society of Anaesthetists is a not-for-profit member-funded organisation dedicated to supporting and connecting Australian anaesthetists.

We work with and for our members to ensure the high standards of the profession. We primarily focus on the economic, workforce and professional interests of our members.

It is through the activities of our State Chairs and State Committee’s that members are actively engaged with the work of the Society.

State Committee’s play a vital role in actively promoting the vision of the Society – at a State level.

Support – Promote the needs of the Specialty in both the public and private sector to State Government and other appropriate authorities.

Represent – Actively address the professional and economic issues that impact on members in public and private practice – in urban, regional and remote Australia.

Educate – Provide a broad range of high-quality educational services, resources and opportunities.
