To the Future Leaders in Anesthesiology
By Edward Mariano, MD, MAS

I was recently invited to visit an academic anesthesiology department to speak to the residents about becoming a leader.  In addition to recognizing the honor and privilege of addressing this important topic with the next generation of physician anesthesiologists, I had two other initial thoughts:  1) I must be getting old; and 2) This isn’t going to be easy.
