Michael Gropper, MD, PhD

Professor and Chair
What I do: 

Dr. Michael Gropper has been Professor and Chair of the UCSF Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care since 2015. In addition to being the Chair, Dr. Gropper is also a Professor of Physiology and an Investigator in the UCSF Cardiovascular Research Institute. He has received numerous honors and awards with the most recent of becoming a Distinguished Professor.


Dr. Gropper received his PhD in Physiology from UCSF, and his medical degree from UCLA. He returned to UCSF and completed a residency in anesthesia and fellowship in critical care medicine.


Dr. Gropper is internationally known for his work in improving outcomes in critically ill patients and has spearheaded successful efforts to reduce hospital-acquired harms in the ICU and operating room. His research interests are acute respiratory failure, severe sepsis, transfusion lung injury, and ICU teamwork and communication.


Under his leadership, the UCSF Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care has grown to include over 250 faculty, 200 staff, and 120 trainees. The department has been ranked in the top ten nationally in NIH-funded research and has a top-ranked residency program. He is enormously proud of the department’s tradition of outstanding patient care, research, and education.


Dr. Gropper leads department sites at the UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center, the Parnassus Out-Patient Surgery Center, Benioff Children’s Hospitals at Mission Bay and Oakland, Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital, Bakar Cancer Hospital, Zuckerberg San Francisco General, Mount Zion Hospital, UCSF Orthopedic Institute, UCSF Pain Management Center, and the SF Veterans Affairs Medical Center.


He serves several leadership roles both at UCSF and for national organizations, including the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Association of University Anesthesiologists, and Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER). He currently serves on the Board of Directors of FAER and is leading the clinical research program of the Anesthesia Research Council. Dr. Gropper has authored over 140 peer-reviewed publications and has received both NIH and private foundation funding for his work. He also is Editor-in-Chief of Miller’s Anesthesia, the internationally leading textbook of anesthesia.
