About Our Faculty & Department

The Department

The Critical Care Anesthesia faculty members are recognized leaders in the field with peer-reviewed publications and book chapters, in addition to speaking at national conferences such as the American Society of Anesthesiologists and Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists yearly meetings. All of our critical care faculty members are board-certified in both Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine. The Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Medicine at MUSC is a highly integrated, collaborative group of adult and pediatric anesthesiologists. The department is comprised of 50+ staff anesthesiologists, 60 residents in clinical anesthesia training, and more than 50+ nurse anesthetists who are all committed to providing optimal care to adult and pediatric patients requiring anesthesia. 

Members of the department also conduct basic and clinical research and teach postgraduate and continuing education programs. MUSC anesthesiologists supervise over greater than 35,000 annual cases requiring anesthesia. This large number of cases, integrated with ongoing research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in anesthetic and critical care management. The critical care division of our department maintains an outstanding working relationship with our surgical critical care, pulmonary critical care, neurocritical care, and cardiothoracic colleagues' creating a multidisciplinary environment that benefits our fellows' educational experience.

Key Highlights:
