Established in 1934, the Australian Society of Anaesthetists is a peak not-for-profit representative body of anaesthesia in Australia.

With over 4,000 members across Australia, we are a member-funded organisation dedicated to supporting, representing and educating anaesthetists to ensure the safest possible anaesthesia for the community. Each year in Australia, anaesthetists have a crucial involvement in almost four million operations.

Thanks to Australian anaesthetists, Australia is one of the safest countries in the world to undergo surgery.
