Vikas N O'Reilly-Shah, MD, PhD


On staff since May 2019

Academic Title: Associate Professor, Anesthesiology

  • was born and raised in New Jersey, and attended Michigan State University on the Alumni Distinguished Scholarship graduating with degrees in biochemistry and philosophy prior to enrollment in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Vanderbilt University. After medical school and doctoral work in structural biology, I trained in anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology at Stanford University. After a relatively brief stint in private practice, I joined the faculty at Emory University where I led departmental data governance efforts including the development of a perioperative data warehouse. I currently serve as Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at the University of Washington, leading the Center for Pain and Perioperative initiatives in Quality Safety and Outcomes (PPiQSO) and serving as the Associate Chief for Perioperative Informatics and Outcomes in Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine at Seattle Children’s Hospital, which is my clinical home as well.
