Who We Are
Students for Antimicrobial Stewardship Society (SASS) is a student-led national organization dedicated to raising awareness of antimicrobial stewardship and resistance across Canada. Founded by medical students, we support a multidisciplinary approach to stewardship through collaboration with students from health professional programs including Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine. We represent students regarding antimicrobial stewardship at the national and international level, interfacing with industry, medical organizations, educational institutions, and governments.
We educate, support, connect, and represent our membership as they foster and champion a culture of stewardship and conscientious, evidence-informed use of antimicrobials. We empower current and future generations of healthcare providers to administer the right treatment to the right patients at the right time, and to be judicious when prescribing.
Growing a culture of antimicrobial stewardship amongst future healthcare providers.
