Maxime Cannesson, MD, PhD

Maxime Cannesson, MD, PhD, is a board-certified anesthesiologist with more than 16 years of experience in academic medicine, leadership, education, research, quality, and technology development. After practicing cardiac anesthesia and critical care for a decade, he refocused his clinical and administrative roles on the multispecialty practice of anesthesiology where he sees most of the challenges facing our profession. Today, the overarching goal of his academic pursuit in anesthesiology and perioperative medicine is to leverage health-informatics, artificial intelligence, and telemedicine to improve patient outcome and experience, and lead the way in digital health, data sciences, and computational medicine while reducing waste, fostering fiscal discipline, and rechanneling physician focus away from computers toward a more humanistic and inclusive medicine.
