Message from the Scientific Program Chair
The Scientific Program Committee is so excited to gather in person at the SCA 44th Annual Meeting and Workshops in beautiful Palm Springs, California. After a challenging year in medicine, we look forward to coming together and networking with you.
The SCA Annual Meeting and Workshops will update you on the latest cardiothoracic anesthesia information through fantastic plenary sessions, controversial panel discussions, pro-con debates, hands-on workshops, mentoring sessions, and problem-based learning sessions.
Come and learn from abstract presentations, the always popular Super Echo Panel and legendary Echo Jeopardy, and a special session from the experts on the new Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology Certification exam.
Plan to hear on hot topics such as updates in coagulation, what’s new in mechanical support, and professional development topics such as leadership and mentorship.
While we were glad to ‘see’ so many of you virtually in 2021, we are thrilled to welcome you to Palm Springs in 2022!
See you there!
