December 17, 2019

Travis-MarkhamThe Department of Anesthesiology at UTHealth is pleased to announce that Travis Markham, MD, has been appointed as the interim residency program director effective January 1, 2020.

A graduate of McGovern Medical School, Dr. Markham was named chief resident his CA-3 year and completed his residency in our department in 2015. He stayed on as faculty for one year, then completed a fellowship in cardiovascular anesthesiology at McGovern in 2017. Dr. Markham has served as assistant program director since 2017, coordinating the anesthesiology internship program while being extensively involved in other aspects of teaching and residency administration. He brings a passion for resident education and an in-depth knowledge of the workings of our residency program—one of the largest in the nation.

A formal search for the program director position will be led by Dr. George Williams. We are grateful to Dr. Semhar Ghebremichael for her outstanding leadership of the residency program since 2017. During her time as program director, she instituted many innovative advancements to the residency program including dedicated didactic days, schedule changes to improve resident work-life balance, and resident late pay. We wish her the best of luck as she leaves McGovern in search of further advancements to her career.
