Expertise: Anesthesiology

Background

Dr. Koch is the Mark C. Rogers Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine. She received her M.D. in 1987 from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and completed her internship in internal medicine at Cleveland Clinic the following year.

She then completed her residency in anesthesiology and also served as a senior resident with a subspecialization in cardiac, thoracic and vascular anesthesiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. In 2001, she received a master’s degree in clinical research, design and statistical analysis from the University of Michigan School of Public Health and in 2010 an M.B.A. at Case Western Reserve University.

Dr. Koch serves on the leadership and editorial boards of many esteemed societies and journals, including the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists, Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, The Annals of Thoracic Surgery and the International Anesthesia Research Society.
