Promoting Advancement in the Field of Anesthesiology Through the ABA

November 8, 2013

Paul Barach, an academic, clinician, medical administrator, and researcher, teaches at a large number of institutions and serves as a project leader and consultant for many organizations. With several years of medical experience, Paul Barach is Board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology in both critical care and anesthesiology.

Since its founding in 1937, the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) has been committed to the advancement of the practice of anesthesiology. The ABA hopes that by providing certifications and promoting continued education, it will be able to maintain and ensure high standards among anesthesiologists. The ABA also strives to provide the names of Board-certified physicians in order to help serve the medical profession, medical schools, and the public as a whole. The American Board of Anesthesiology supports a wide variety of research and scientific societies in its attempt to continue advancing the field.

The ABA’s critical care medicine certification is given to critical care medicine physicians who have extensive knowledge of managing critically ill patients. Those physicians who receive this certification are primarily based in the intensive care units (ICU) of their hospitals. The critical care certification requires that applicants complete their training in a primary specialty and complete further training in critical care medicine. Applicants must be able to teach colleagues, use accepted vital support techniques, and work together with the specialists involved with the ICU.
