Jeremy Kahn, MD, MS, has been promoted to full professor in the University of Pittsburgh. In a letter to Kahn approving the advancement, Chancellor Patrick Gallagher cited the “clear evidence of institutional respect earned by your academic work to date.” Kahn holds a primary appointment in the Department of Critical Care Medicine, with secondary appointments in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Health Policy & Management in the Graduate School of Public Health.
Since moving to the University of Pittsburgh in 2010, Kahn has acquired an international reputation as a thought-leader in the field of critical care, and is regularly sought out for his expertise in ICU organization and management, particularly regarding how best to use ICU organization as a lever to improve outcomes for critically ill patients and to increase the efficiency of critical care. He consistently publishes in the highest quality journals in the field, with over 150 publications to his name, nearly 100 of which are peer-reviewed research. Kahn also has a demonstrated track record of sustainable extra-mural funding, and currently directs three R01s. He also has a history of success as a mentor and educator, having supervised over 10 doctoral candidates and post-doctoral trainees, who have all gone on to successful academic careers.
Kahn’s promotion, made effective February 1, 2016, is also, according to the chancellor, “an expression of our confidence that the years ahead will bring many additional accomplishments and contributions.”
