About Maria A Öhrn

My name is Maria Öhrn, MD, and I joined the Department of Anesthesiology in 2024 as an assistant professor in the Division of Multispecialty Anesthesiology. I’m a “triple gator,” which means I completed my bachelor’s degree, medical degree, and anesthesiology residency here at the University of Florida. I was also a clinical instructor/special fellow here in the department after completing my residency. Over my career, I’ve served as an anesthesiologist in a number of roles in both academic and private practice.

Caring for people at a time of when they are vulnerable is an honor and a privilege. One of the great joys of anesthesiology is establishing an immediate connection with each of our patients. We have the opportunity and duty to show compassion and kindness to patients during times that are often stressful. My personal goal is that each of my patients feel respected, understood, and safe.

As an anesthesiologist, my clinical interests include the use of human patient simulators. I started working with these tools in their infancy and I look forward to using this powerful teaching tool to hone the skills of future clinicians. I also find my work in the operating room, which requires managing the interplay of physiology and pharmacology in real time, to be both intellectually engaging and enjoyable.

Outside of work I enjoy reading, writing, meditation, and hiking with friends and family.
