My name is John H. Eichhorn; I received my medical degree from Harvard Medical School, Boston. I started residency in surgery and switched to anesthesiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, which I interrupted for a research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md.

I am board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology. I have been included on the list "Best Doctors in America" since it was created in 1992. I am a Provost's Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Kentucky. I am a nationally and internationally recognized leader in patient safety and standards of practice and in 2010 received the prestigious Eisenberg Award for Individual Achievement in Patient Safety and Quality from the Joint Commission-National Quality Forum.
