Biography

Randy Steadman, MD, MS, joined Houston Methodist as the Chair of Anesthesiology in March 2020. Prior to joining us, he served in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at UCLA Health since 1994, most recently as Professor and Vice Chair for Education. His clinical work is directed toward the perioperative care of patients undergoing liver and abdominal organ transplantation. He served as the UCLA chief of service for liver transplantation from 1999 to 2018, and nationally with several organizations including as counselor for the International Liver Transplant Society, as chair of the ASA Committee for Transplant Anesthesia, and as a member of the UNOS Membership and Professional Standards Committee. He is the founding director of the UCLA Simulation Center, which has served undergraduate and graduate medical trainees and the continuing professional development community since 1996. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Anesthesiology.

Description of Research

Dr. Steadman's publications focus on simulation-based training and assessment, transplantation and liver disease. His most recent research activities address transplant anesthesia, simulation for practice improvement, and the development of screen-based games for medical training.
