Kayser Enneking, M.D., honored by UF Women in Medicine and Science

Enneking Diamond Award

Kayser Enneking, M.D., professor of anesthesiology and orthopaedics, was recently honored by UF Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) for her professional excellence, contribution as a role model, and outstanding leadership.

Enneking, who also received the UF College of Medicine’s Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year, shared the WIMS Diamond Award with Maryam Rahman, M.D., M.S., an associate professor in the Lillian S. Wells Department of Neurosurgery.

“I was really humbled by this recognition,” said Enneking, who has long been a leading voice of quality, innovation, and excellence in the field of anesthesiology. “The WIMS committee created a very special event that emphasized the achievements of our female faculty members and acknowledged the struggles that come with that role. I hope in some ways I have helped to pave the path so the path is smoother for all of our faculty members.”

Enneking’s accomplishments range from proving the safety and efficacy of continuous peripheral nerve blocks and establishing the framework for their use in outpatient surgery, to developing robust quality agendas while serving as chair for the department of anesthesiology and interim chair for the department of dermatology. She was also instrumental in establishing the UF Baby Gator Child Development Center on Newell Drive.
