Medicine, and the specific field of anesthesiology, are changing rapidly. The number of journals describing these changes and the articles describing the investigative work being done has just exploded and, unless following the information in one of our many subspecialties, it would be impossible to remain current with evolving information. This series was designed to provide current information to our faculty, students and staff to allow their care of patients to reflect best practices and to encourage each of them to make a regular practice of seeking new and accurate information so that they can remain current in their practices. A few of the topics that will be discussed in the current academic year include: Managing patients with COVID in the intensive care unit, implementing enhanced recovery protocols, and prehabilitation, what is it and does it work?
