Whether you are a first-time attendee or a returning participant, WELCOME!

The beautiful Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina will be host to the University of California, San Diego Department of Anesthesiology Update 2018 from January 10-13, 2018.

The UC San Diego Anesthesiology Update 2018 is an exciting and refreshing occasion and has been designed to provide an in-depth, state-of-the-art review of the current practice of anesthesia. This year we will focus on “hot topics” such as point of care ultrasound, enhanced recovery, multimodal perioperative pain management, and preoperative assessment (including genomics). As always, Dr. Jonathan Benumof will provide excellent airway management lectures, Dr. Joel Kaplan will provide an update on cardiovascular issues, and I will present some exciting cases (“Moments of Terror”). All of our speakers are experts in their fields, and accomplished lecturers. The workshops will include point of care ultrasound, airway management, and hemodynamic management, and will be FREE of CHARGE.

Traditionally, this educational activity attracts a mixed audience consisting of practicing anesthesiologists, anesthesia trainees, and CRNAs from academic and private practice groups nationwide.

As always, there will be plenty of time left each day to sight-see, play, and enjoy the sun and sights of beautiful San Diego! I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
