Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Charles Baysinger has joined the Divisions of Critical Care Medicine and General Anesthesiology at Washington University as a Voluntary Clinical Instructor of Anesthesiology.

Dr. Baysinger obtained his Doctor of Medicine from the George Washington University School of Medicine. After medical school, Dr. Baysinger completed an Anesthesiology residency at the University of Kentucky, then moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he completed a fellowship in Critical Care Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Following his fellowship training, Dr. Baysinger joined the United States Air Force where he is currently a critical care intensivist that works with the critical care air transport team (CCATT) out of Scott Air Force Base and is part of the 375th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron. In 2021, Dr. Baysinger was deployed as an intensivist where he assisted in the draw-down efforts at Bagram Air Force Base, as well as coordinated aeromedical evacuation for multiple United States Embassy contractors that contracted COVID-19 while in Afghanistan. The distinguished efforts mentioned above, along with many more, earned him both United States Air Force Commendation and Achievement Medals.

Dr. Baysinger will divide his clinical time between the South ORs, academic and community ICUs, and the ICU telemedicine center.

Please take a moment to welcome him to the Department of Anesthesiology!
