        Photo: Khaldoun Faris, M.D.As the associate director of UMMHC's Surgical Critical Care Services, I am involved in the daily activities of the surgical critical care units at the University and Memorial campuses. I am also the program director of Anesthesiology Critical Care Fellowship.

        My job involves not only leading a large team of fellows, residents, medical students, PA/NP's, nurses, and other professionals on the ICU rounds, but also actively participating in supervising and teaching the ICU residents, who come to us from three different departments: anesthesiology, surgery, and emeregency medicine.

        I am also a member of the anesthesia team for liver transplants.
