The Pennsylvania Society of Anesthesiologists (PSA) announces its new program, Doctors for Education, dedicated to educating the public about a variety of anesthesia-related topics.

How it works

  • Public organizations looking for a speaker must complete a Speaking Engagement Request Form.
  • After returning the completed speaking engagement form, a staff coordinator will establish contact with you once the speaker has been confirmed. Please allow 7-10 business days for speaker reservations to be confirmed.
  • PSA member volunteers will share their knowledge and experience with your organization.
  • An Evaluation Form will be provided to the organization contact at the conclusion of the event.
