AUA 59th Annual Meeting
InterContinental Cleveland
Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland, Ohio
We are extremely pleased to host the 2012 Association of
University Anesthesiologists’ Annual Meeting in Cleveland.
The Anesthesiology Institute at Cleveland Clinic is proud to
host this meeting for the fi rst time, and we look forward to
an exciting program.
We welcome all the AUA members to Cleveland, a city with
a great tradition for clinical medicine, research and medical
education. Cleveland Clinic sponsors the Cleveland Clinic
Lerner College of Medicine, a 5 year program designed to
create the physician investigators of the future, and one
of the newest medical schools in the country. The Clinic
sponsors GME training for more than 900 physicians
in residency and fellowship programs. The Cleveland
Clinic campus is just minutes from University Circle,
with Severance Hall (home of the Cleveland Symphony
Orchestra), the Museum of Art, the Botanical Gardens,
the Museum of Natural History, and historic Cleveland
Auto Museum. A few blocks further is the campus of Case
Western Reserve University, which includes the Case
School of Medicine and University Hospitals of Cleveland.
As you can see, medicine is a major part of the life-blood
of Cleveland.
The AUA leadership has again created an exciting
program, assembling elements of healthcare dynamics,
anesthesiology education, and basic science. The EAB will
present a panel describing international anesthesiology
education, and a panel on performance assessment during
anesthesiology residency. The President’s Panel will
explore the basic science on consciousness, including the
controversial topic of intraoperative awareness. The SAB
offers oral presentations and poster discussion sessions,
where junior faculty and residents mix with senior faculty
presenting a wide array of scientifi c work. The Host
Program is entitled “When Music Sings, the Brain Listens
and the Heart Modulates: A Concert-Lecture” and will
explore the science of how music stimulates the brain, is
created, and can be used therapeutically. The science will
be complemented by a performance by a virtuoso pianist,
Prisca Benoit. The meeting reception will be Friday night, to
allow early departure from Cleveland on Saturday for those
who wish to do so. This reception will be held in the world
famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where cocktails and
a buffet dinner will complement free access to all exhibits
in the Rock Hall. There is no better way to come in touch
with the origins of rock and roll than a gently stroll through
the Rock Hall, and even better- only the AUA guests will be
present, promising uncrowded access to all the exhibits.
Great meetings do not just happen. Christine Dionne
and her team from the AUA headquarters in Park Ridge,
Illinois have made a major commitment to making this a
great meeting, handling logistics, challenging scheduling
issues and the innumerable critical issues involved in
creating a running a meeting of this size. The EAB and
SAB have done their usual stellar job of assembling a
cutting edge program. The Cleveland Clinic CME offi ce
has made positive suggestions, and the leadership of the
InterContinental Hotel has planned a warm, comfortable
welcome for all AUA attendees. The planning committee
gratefully acknowledges the hard work and expertise of all
who have contributed to creating this program. We look
forward to seeing you in May.
