Interim Division Chief for GVTCCM Anesthesia Announced

I am pleased to announce Dr. Tim Miller as the Interim Division Chief for General, Vascular, and Transplant and Critical Care Medicine (GVTCCM), effective July 1, 2015. Dr. Miller is an associate professor of anesthesiology at Duke University Medical Center, and was appointed as Clinical Director of Abdominal Transplant Anesthesiology in April of last year.

Dr. Miller completed his residency in anesthesiology at the Nottingham and East Midlands School of Anesthesia, UK. Following his residency, Dr. Miller obtained a cardiothoracic anesthesia fellowship at Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, UK. He is also a fellow of the Royal College of Anesthetists.

Dr. Miller joined the faculty at Duke in 2007. His clinical and research interests include Enhanced Recovery and perioperative optimization of the high-risk, non-cardiac surgery patient. He is the author of more than 40 peer-reviewed manuscripts, editorials, and book chapters. Dr. Miller founded the Duke Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Program in partnership with the Department of Surgery in 2010, making it one of the first such programs established in the country. Under his leadership, colorectal patients at Duke benefit from faster recovery times than the national average. He is a founding member and vice-president of the American Society for Enhanced Recovery (ASER).

I would also like to thank Dr. Richard Moon for his service as the GVTCCM Division Chief, a position that he has held since 2007. In his ongoing role as Medical Director, Dr. Moon will continue his research in the Center for Hyperbaric Medicine & Environmental Physiology. Additionally, he will continue to serve as the Chair of the Departmental Appointments, Promotion, and Tenure Committee, and will be the leader of our departmental mentorship program.
