Dear Colleagues,

Please plan to join us at the 13th Annual Thoracic Anesthesia Symposium and Workshops in belle Montreal, Canada! We are excited to see you there for a robust exchange of ideas, techniques, and advances in the field of Thoracic Anesthesia.

We recognize how valuable your time is and the wide array of choices available to you for continuing medical education. In addition to didactic sessions presented by international experts in Thoracic Anesthesia, the Thoracic Anesthesia Symposium Planning Committee is also excited to offer a selection of updated and new Workshops featuring hands on experience with 3D printed models, precision ultrasound guidance, and augmented reality technology.

As always, we aim for the Symposium to provide you with critical updates on relevant topics in Thoracic Anesthesia, to enhance your learning of important techniques and skills, to promote discussion and debate of controversial topics in our field, and to facilitate networking. We are also pleased to offer novel research and challenging case presentations in both poster and oral presentation formats as well as several problem-based learning discussions. Each session is thoughtfully designed to present clear and timely information pertinent to our unique subspecialty.

During the next months leading up to our meeting in Montreal, please check out the SCA DocMatter Thoracic Channel (DLT Exchange) for lively discussions curated by our Planning Committee members along with teasers of our 2025 Symposium content.

We look forward to reconnecting familiar colleagues to meeting new ones!
