There are approximately 20,000 anaesthesiologists in Brazil, around 6,000 of them in Sao Paulo.

After a Memorandum of Understanding with SAESP (Society of Anaesthesiology of Sao Paulo – Brazil) and ESA was signed 17 November 2015 during the 62nd Congress of the SBA (Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology) in Florianopolis, Dr. Zeev Goldik met Dr. Oscar Cesar Pires – President of the SBA, and Dr. Rogean Rodrigues Nunes – Scientific Director of the SBA.


During this meeting a fruitful collaboration between ESA and SBA was agreed:

1) Brazil would launch on 8 April 2016 6 centres for the On Line Assessment (OLA) -Fortaleza, São Paulo, Goiânia, Belo Horizonte, Florianópolis, Joinville- with 185 participants.

Paulo Sa (Portugal) would supervise the first OLA in Brazil for ESA. We would like to acknowledge Paulo for his intervention, facilitating our contacts with Brazil.

2) Exchange of lecturers between SBA and ESA. This is the Brazilian Session planned for the Euroanaesthesia Congress in London, where 9 important speakers will present anaesthesiology activities in 25 Brazilian states:
