The APSA 2021 virtual meeting is no longer open to new registrants. If you missed it, content from the main meeting as well as subsequent APSAsodes will be re-released later in the year through APSA PedSurgLibrary. More details coming soon.

Included with your annual meeting registration, PedSurgTV is your new source for rich and educational pediatric surgery content. Scheduled to provide up to 32 hours of “APSAsodes” over the course of a year.
