Critical Care Anesthesiology in the Cardiothoracic ICU
Merritt Hawkins Department of Academic Recruiting has partnered with Yale School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology to find board certified, fellowship trained critical care anesthesiologists with experience in critical care management of cardiothoracic patients.
The Department of Anesthesiology faculty provide clinical and administrative leadership in the adult cardiothoracic ICU. The 18-bed unit cares for patients undergoing a wide variety of cardiac procedures including CABG, valves, assist devices, ECMO, and transplantation. The faculty are also actively involved in fellowship training for both the cardiac and ICU fellowships; as well as participation in all aspects of resident education.
The Division of Cardiac Anesthesia’s 14 faculty share a common vision: to provide the best in patient care while advancing the department’s educational and academic missions. Their relationships with their surgeons are very good and built on trust and mutual respect. The team works well together, has low turnover, is growing its national presence, and recruits world-renowned investigators. The current need is due to an expansion of in-house coverage until midnight. Scheduling will be based on equality, not tenure.
- The department has a long history of providing clinical care and medical direction in the CT ICU
- Clinical duties will be divided between the CT ICU and operating room
