BeSARPP | Membership


Dear Colleagues,

Your membership is very important to us, and to the Belgian anesthesiology community. By becoming a member, you sustain our society in achieving its goals, namely the promotion of excellence in the practice of anesthesia, in patient management and safety, as well as the promotion of excellent education and science in anesthesia. The more we are, the stronger we can be, and the higher the chances of being heard and recognized. The BeSARPP is at a privileged place to give advices and counseling to the authorities regarding the domains it aims for.

Anesthesiologists in training are also more than welcome. We need their input through the Belgian Anesthesia Trainees group (BAT) to improve the way anesthesia education is provided. Special prices have been designed for them.

But BeSARPP membership is not a one-way deal. By becoming a member, you will benefit from all the advantages of it:

  • Access to several education opportunities at a low price, or even for free in some instances, such as the graduation day, and workshops to learn practical skills.
  • Free online access to the society’s journal, the Acta Anaesthesiologica Belgica. In this journal, and beside original studies and case reports, detailed narrative review articles are provided on a regular basis, dealing with hot topics and providing up-to-date information for the anesthetic management of several pathological conditions. The journal is also a communication link, where the BeSARPP can diffuse its own guidelines or highlight those of other anesthesia societies. It also allows residents to publish their master’s thesis at the end of their training.
  • Possibility to apply for research grants if you are in a position of conducting clinical or basic science research. Each year, and after adequate selection by independent international experts, the BeSARPP awards grants to Belgian anesthesia research projects of excellent quality.
  • Being part of a large scientific network, both in Belgium and the remaining world, through the privileged relationship the BeSARPP has with international anesthesia societies such as the European Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care (ESAIC), and the World Federation of Anesthesia Societies (WFSA).
  • Reduced fee for several scientific meetings that are endorsed by the BeSARPP, either in Belgium or abroad.  
  • Free ESAIC Associate Membership (Online access to European Journal of Anaesthesiology, the Current Opinion in Critical Care, the Current Opinion in Anaesthesiology and the ESAIC Newsletter).
  • Monthly BeSARPP newsletter with the latest updates in the field of Anesthesia.
  • Access to the member section of the BeSARPP website (available as of March 2021).


For a first time in history, you will have the opportunity to become a member of the Belgian Society of Anesthesiology, Resuscitation, Perioperative Medicine and Pain Management (BeSARPP – Formerly SARB) and l’Association Professionnelle Belge des Médecins Spécialistes en Anesthésie-Réanimation / Belgische Beroepsvereniging van Artsen-Specialisten in Anesthesie en Reanimatie (BSAR/APSAR) through 1 registration.

The offer to register for both societies at once makes administration for you much easier.

Of course, you will also have the possibility to still become member of just 1 society (see below).

Membership is from 1 January until 31 December.
