The Frederic A. Berry Professorship in Pediatric Anesthesia

Fritz Berry

Dr. Berry completed his undergraduate degree at UVA and entered the School of Medicine in 1955.  Trained both as a pediatrician and an anesthesiologist, Dr. Berry joined the faculty of the Department of Anesthesiology upon completing his residency in 1966.  Over the course of a 43 year career, he trained over 500 residents at UVA as well as acting as a visiting professor at universities around the world. 

Dr. Berry is the author of two renowned texts in pediatric anesthesiology, and dozens of book chapters and journal articles further extending his influence.  Here in Charlottesville, he is well known for his gentle touch and ability to comfort his young patients and their grateful parents.

For his many contributions to pediatric anesthesia, global and local, we are proud to establish the Frederic A. Berry Professorship in Pediatric Anesthesiology.
