The University of Pittsburgh Physicians (UPP) Department of Anesthesiology invites applications and nomination for the position of the Peter and Eva Safar Chair, Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Pittsburgh.

The Department of Anesthesiology is among the premier anesthesia departments in the world. It has pioneered many areas of perioperative care, is among the best training programs in the specialty, and ranks highly in National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research. Its service to the clinical mission of UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) is a critical element in UPMC’s continued national hospital rankings in the U.S. News & World Report.

The Department serves approximately 20 clinical sites across a wide geographic area, manages nearly 300,000 cases per year, and is staffed with more than 150 faculty physicians and over 350 CRNAs, including nationally recognized experts in the perioperative setting, acute interventional pain management, and chronic pain for both adult and pediatric patients throughout UPMC.
