Formed in 1934, the Australian Society of Anaesthetists is a not-for-profit, member-funded organisation dedicated to supporting, representing and educating anaesthetists to ensure the safest possible anaesthesia for the community. 

Each year in Australia, anaesthetists have a crucial involvement in over four million operations. Anaesthetists are essential to ensure safe anaesthesia. They play a critical role in the safety and wellbeing of patients before, during and after an operation.

We work with and for our member anaesthetists to ensure the high standards of the profession. 

What we do

For over 90 years the ASA has been the voice for Australian Anaesthetists and their patients.
