About Brenda G Fahy

Dr. Fahy currently serves as the associate chair of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Florida. The division provides clinical coverage in the Neuro Intensive Care Unit, Burn Unit, Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Trauma Intensive Care Unit, and Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Dr. Fahy serves as medical director for the Neuro Intensive Care Unit and program director for the Adult Combined Cardiothoracic Critical Care Fellowship.

Dr. Fahy is president of the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA), an organization she’s been actively involved with since 2003 when she began volunteering as an examiner. As president, Dr. Fahy is charged with setting the strategic initiatives for the ABA. She is only the fourth female president in the ABA’s history.

Dr. Fahy’s research interests involve studies in the critically ill patient population and multidisciplinary translational research. She is currently a coinvestigator on the NIH-funded P50 center grant for the UF Sepsis and Critical Illness Research Center to study the persistent inflammation, immunosuppression, and catabolism syndrome (PICS) following sepsis in surgical intensive care unit patients. She also has an interest in education research that encompasses learning techniques including flipped classroom and team-based learning. These teaching models have been incorporated into electroencephalography education and team-based emergency responses.
