Uniformed Services University

Faculty Information

Uniformed anesthesiologists are clinical, educational, and research leaders in and out of the operating rooms throughout the Military Health System. As the academic center, USU unites all of us in a common mission– to support the operational anesthesiology community through excellence in clinical practice, education and training, and research and scholarship. As such, I believe that all anesthesiologists who contribute to the uniformed services’ medical education or research should have the opportunity to receive an academic appointment at USU. Educational activities involve the direct or virtual support of USU medical students, military anesthesiology residents and fellows.  Educational activities may also include teaching anesthesiology knowledge and skills to military physician assistants, advanced practice nursing students, first responders such as corpsmen, medics, and firefighters, as well as support and mentorship to other non-anesthesia military graduate medical education programs. Research and scholarship activities in ANE involve basic science, clinical science, or big-data studies conducted in collaboration with our students, residents, and staff.

Faculty appointment and promotion recognize the clinical practice, education and training, and research and scholarship you do within the Department of Anesthesiology. But faculty appointment is more than an honorary title.  Academic appointment and promotion may be recognized by service-specific skill or qualification designators, impacting military promotion and selection for military leadership positions. Also, as you consider your long term career goals, academic rank is a well-recognized and important discriminator in civilian academic medicine.

Thank you again for your valued contributions to military anesthesiology through expert clinical care, medical education, and research. We look forward to partnering with you on your road to academic advancement as a member of the national faculty in the USU School of Medicine’s Department of Anesthesiology (ANE).
