The University of Michigan is consistently ranked among the top 10 medical schools and health systems in the country and our Department of Anesthesiology at U-M has been ranked #1 of all U.S. anesthesiology departments in National Institutes of Health funding since 2015. Furthermore, we have a wide array of foundation, state, and industry funding that complements our robust portfolio.
Our researchers: produce research and commentaries that have been published in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet, JAMA, JAMA Surgery, Science, Science Advances, Nature Genetics, Nature Communications, PNAS, and Current Biology; serve in major editorial positions, including journals like Anesthesiology; and serve in leadership positions in the three major academic associations in the field — Association of University Anesthesiologists, Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research, International Anesthesia Research Society
In addition to generating some of the most influential clinical and foundational work within the field of anesthesiology, we have rich and productive interdisciplinary connections to basic science, public health, engineering, and even philosophy and the arts.
Furthermore, our faculty serve major research leadership roles across the university — as well as nationally — in fields that transcend the traditional boundaries of anesthesiology, including genomics, precision health, drug discovery, and translational science. We are committed to major impact in anesthesiology as well as science, medicine, and society in general. We are also committed to shaping a more diverse and inclusive future for academic anesthesiology, both within our department and across the country.
