T.W. Andersen Teacher of the Year

Torkhild W. Andersen, MD, was the department’s very first faculty member. He came from Mass General with J.S. Gravenstein, MD, who was our first chair. As a pioneering anesthesiologist in Denmark, Dr. Andersen demonstrated that artificially supporting the ventilation of patients with acute onset poliomyelitis helped many patients recover the ability to breathe adequately during recovery. In addition, he and Dr. Bernard Briggs established the Respiratory Intensive Care Unit at Mass General which was one of the first in the country. Dr. Andersen is world-renowned for these accomplishments. He was recognized by our residents with the Outstanding Teacher award every year from 1958-1978. The award was renamed the T.W. Anderson Teacher of the Year in 1995, when Drs. Nik Gravenstein and Kayser Enneking were the first joint award winner.

Haven M. Perkins Lifetime Teaching Award

Haven M. Perkins, MD, was the department’s first resident. He was a board-certified general and cardiac surgeon who was five years older than T.W. Andersen, MD. In his late thirties, Dr. Perkins developed an allergy to Physohex (used exclusively to scrub one’s hands prior to surgery) and turned to anesthesiology. After his residency, he remained on faculty until he was 77 years old. Fondly known as “Perk,” he was famous for his original West Virginia philosophical sayings, known as “Perkisms.”

Acknowledgements

The leadership of the anesthesiology residency and fellowship programs would not be able to continue without the tireless contributions of our departmental faculty.

We appreciate the unwavering support of Dr. Janelle and the Leadership Team to ensure that our programs provide superior training.

We are grateful to the departmental administrative staff for their conscientiousness and support of our trainees.

We are indebted to our chief residents: Anthony Barrios, M.D., Jennifer Bromwell, D.O., Paul Campbell, M.D., and Tatsiana Kryvitskaya, M.D.; who led our residents over the past academic year. Their contributions to the residency program will be felt for many years to come.

As classes of residents and fellows move through our programs and become leaders in our field, and as hospital, departmental, and program priorities ebb and flow, the staff members of our Education Office remain steadfast in their dedication.

Thank you.
