Education at ASA
Managing the development and delivery of high-quality education programming requires collaboration between physician volunteers and professional staff. The Education staff work with the Committees, Editorial Boards and the ASA leadership to develop the programs that contribute to a member’s lifelong learning.
The Committee on Professional Education Oversight (CPEO), whose members are primarily ASA Section Chairs, oversees all education activities and CME compliance. With an approved strategy, the CPEO can effectively support physician activities and develop successful programs across the ASA.

The contributions made by members to the development of ASA CME activities are immeasurable. The success of many CME activities is directly attributed to the commitment, resourcefulness and “intellectual capital” of the physicians involved. Through their participation, they lend their knowledge and experience to help ASA product the education programs that can address the most relevant areas of practice to members and others. If you are an ASA member who is interested in becoming involved in developing education activities, contact Educationcenter@asahq.org.
Beginning in 2009, ASA leadership committed to investing in hiring the professional staff with the qualifications to lead, produce, and manage knowledge-based educational activities. The Education Team is primarily responsible for planning the design, production and delivery of ASA education content. The team aggregates data to identify learning needs and gaps; designs education programs and improvements to meet priority needs; coordinates content development with physician leaders; produces the program in the appropriate delivery methodology(s) and evaluates the results. Team members also coordinate reporting CME and MOCA compliance to the ABA; track and report data to the ACCME; establish policies and processes to ensure compliance with ACCME, ABA and ABMS requirements; and coordinate activities for the Simulation Education Network. The Education Department assists Member Services with customer support.
