Simon Named Anesthesia Chair
Brett Simon, MD, PhD, has joined Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) as Chair of the Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care and Pain Medicine.
For the past 17 years, Simon has served the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore - since 2001 as Chief, Division of Adult Anesthesia, and additionally for the past five years as Vice-Chair for Faculty Development. He is widely recognized as an outstanding scientist, clinician, teacher and mentor, something Johns Hopkins' residents clearly recognized when they selected him four times for their highest honor - the Outstanding Teaching Award. "Trainees are the future of our specialty and teaching is one of the reasons I enjoy medicine," he says.
