Early Career Committee Chair Offers A Perspective on ASLMS

"ASLMS is the premier organization for anyone interested in Biomedical lasers. I love our meeting because I always learn from the great research being presented from the spectrum of medical specialties. It is wonderful to network with national and international colleagues as well as early career members and laser medicine pioneers!"

ASLMS Resident/Fellow Board Representative Encourages Residents to Join ASLMS

"I would like to encourage all residents to join ASLMS and utilize the vast resources that the Society has to offer. Being a resident myself, I do realize that we have a lot on our plates, from clinical duties to studying for the boards. It can be easily overwhelming to keep track of all the new technologies and lasers out there. But that's why it is so important to become part of ASLMS early in your career. This way, you can broaden your knowledge and network at the same time."
