A Commitment to Teaching
Over the years, the Department of Anesthesia has attracted and cultivated an outstanding faculty team, most with subspecialty interests that serve as a focus for their teaching and research endeavors. Five hold the Ph.D. Degree, which is evidence of their commitment to advancing the scientific basis of anesthesia.
In addition, the backgrounds of the faculty reflect a refreshing diversity. A fine balance exists between those trained within the department and those trained at other leading institutions around the world. The former provide stability to the educational program, while the latter bring perspective and innovation. New views are further enhanced through an ongoing international exchange program. The department has achieved a nationwide reputation for academic excellence. Achievements by individual faculty add to its prominence.
The present faculty includes six subspecialty certification in critical care medicine, four with subspecialty certification in pain management, twelve with fellowship training in pediatric anesthesia, twelve in neuroanesthesia, ten in cardiac anesthesia and four research scientists. Three of the faculty have been elected for membership in the prestigious Association of University Anesthesiologists. Strong basic and clinical research activities lie at the center of the Department of Anesthesia’s program. The faculty holds positions on various national committees and boards of national societies and serves as directors of organizations.
