When you join as a Trainee member, you become part of a community which aims at promoting, sharing and communicating information with each other. As a Trainee member you will receive regular updates on developments in anaesthesia and medicine in general as well as offering the chance to develop and contribute to a representative network of established anaesthetists and trainees.
Here are our ASA Trainee Membership Categories:
|ASA Trainee Membership Category||Annual Rate (inc GST)|
|Prevocational Medical Education Training (PMET)||Complimentary|
|Introductory/Basic Trainee (IBT)||Complimentary|
|Advanced/Provisional Fellow Trainee (APFT)||$516.12|
Additionally, the fiscal benefits of becoming an ASA member and joining as a Trainee member is that free membership is offered during your PMET and Introductory/Basic Training; and when you commence your Advanced training or first year as a Fellow you will be given one complimentary registration to the Society’s biggest annual event; the National Scientific Conference (terms and conditions apply, please contact the Membership Team for further details). When you look at it, over the three years that you are paying as an Advanced/Provisional Fellow Trainee, the membership will have paid for itself!
We host events specifically aimed at meeting the needs of trainees such as providing Part 3 courses to prepare advanced trainees for life as a consultant. We provide exam and education support and scholarship opportunities each year.
We also recognise that help shouldn’t stop as soon as you have entered training and so we ensure that assistance and advice can be found in determining future career options when embarking on your professional life. Even more importantly, we aim to encourage and develop future leadership potential in our members and do this through the constant call for opinions and advice from trainees, established anaesthetists and major representative bodies.
