Dr. Amanda Frantz

We are pleased to announce that Amanda Frantz, M.D., assistant professor of anesthesiology, has been named interim chief of the Division of Critical Care Medicine.

In this role, Dr. Frantz will ensure that patients receive high-quality care and serve as a contact point for faculty and staff to discuss concerns. The division provides care for six intensive care units with some of the most acutely ill patients in the country, offering extensive training for our students, residents, fellows, and physician assistants.

Dr. Frantz received her medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine. She completed an internship and residency in anesthesiology at Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as a critical care fellowship here in the Department of Anesthesiology. She joined the department as an assistant professor in 2017.

Dr. Frantz has been a tremendous asset to the Division of Critical Care Medicine and is an outstanding educator. This winter, she was named co-director of the Anesthesiology/Critical Care Clerkship. She has played a vital role in providing critical care instruction on a daily basis, and her top-notch teaching and clinical skills ensure that our trainees receive the best possible learning experience.

We are thrilled to have such a talented physician take on this role. Congratulations, Dr. Frantz!
