In previous years, the Singapore Society of Anaesthesiologists would give out Best Medical Officer Awards in conjunction with the General Scientific Meeting. This year, we will be having our inaugural Singapore Anaesthesia Refresher Course. The Executive Committee of the SSA have decided to do something different. Instead of having the best MO, we want to recognise the best advanced specialist trainee for 2011-2012. After all, these are the indispensible individuals every department.
The various restructured hospital Anaesthesia HODs have nominated their best ASTs based on 5 criteria with the acronym CARES:
- Clinical Excellence
- Administrative Duties
- Educational Activities
- SSA Contribution
