The 2007, Horizon Report on technology in higher education notes that the effect of increasing globalization is the second of six most significant trends impacting education in the next 5 years. In support of our vision to keep abreast of evolving trends in health care and education, the program has pursued a program of international outreach to promote anesthesia education, cultural understanding, and clinical expertise across national boundaries. We have been involved with organizations and groups in North and South America, Africa, and Asia. As testiment to our commitment to international education and educational standards, in 2012, we became the first program in the U.S. to be fully accredited by the International Federation of Nurse Anesthetists.
