Specialty-Specific Interactive Sessions: GI, Multi, Ophthalmology, Ortho/Pain/Spine (4:30pm–5:30pm) – Get to know and exchange ideas with your colleagues who work in ASCs that serve the same specialties as your ASC. Speakers will present the hottest topics in your specialty and invite participants to share real-life experiences and practical advice and brainstorm together to find new approaches to the unique challenges of your ASC. You can then continue those conversations over the next three days at the meeting.
If you have not yet registered for ASCA 2014, sign up here today. ASCA members can take advantage of a discounted rate and enjoy additional savings by sending more than one attendee.
New for 2014: ASCA is going green this year and will not be providing a print version of the syllabus. The syllabus will be provided digitally in advance of the meeting (so that you can print it out and bring it with you) and on a thumb drive that you can pick up in-person at the registration desk.
