The Anaesthetic Research Society has over 700 members and is run by the Council which comprises eleven elected members including the President, the Honorary Secretary and the Honorary Treasurer.
The Anaesthetic Research Society Meeting welcomes both members and non-members, sponsored by an existing member, to present oral (8 minutes duration) or poster communications describing original, unpublished research in anaesthesia or related disciplines. Presenters range from undergraduate and postgraduate students in medicine or biomedical sciences, to SpR anaesthetic trainees, consultants and academic scientists. There are two meetings per year (Summer and Winter) each over 2 days, which offer 8-10 CPD points for attendance. Everyone is welcome and these meetings provide the presenters with a friendly and interested audience capable of providing constructive feedback.
The ARS emblem is taken from the early use of Mandragora officinarum in anaesthetic practice.
