Registration & Registration Fee Information
FAER resident scholars must register for the ANESTHESIOLOGY® annual meeting as any other meeting attendee would. FAER provides each participating department with a $1,000 grant to cover the cost associated with sending a resident to the meeting. FAER does not reimburse the resident directly. It is up to the department to determine what expenses are covered.
FAER encourages resident scholars to attend as many sessions as possible while at the meeting. The resident scholar, or the department, will be responsible for the cost of special workshops or panels attended.

FAER resident scholars are responsible for arranging their own travel and hotel for the meeting. Hotel reservations for official conference hotels can be found on the ASA annual meeting website.
