Thomas Burch, M.D.
Hi my name is Thomas (Tommy) Burch. Thank you for visiting our
I am a board certified anesthesiologist and a board certified
echocardiographer. I performed an anesthesiology
residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), a
cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship at Wake Forest and a
pediatric cardiac fellowship at Children's Hospital
I have performed adult and pediatric cardiothoracic
anesthesiology at 5 major medical centers. I have worked in a
variety of cardiac operating rooms including several major academic
centers, a veteran's administration hospital, a private practice
hospital, and a major academic pediatric cardiac center.
I have won the teacher of the year award 4 times at 3 different
academic medical centers, most recently this year at Children's
Hospital Boston. Currently I work in Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess
Medical Center as well as Childrens Hospital Boston.
I have written a few echocardiographic publications including a
board review book (Conquer the PTE),
which is no longer in print. I have lectured at many
local and national meetings (Society of Cardiothoracic
Anesthesiology, Harvard Review Course) and I have helped many
private practice physicians, residents and fellows pass the
PTEeXAM. I have also lectured at private practice hospitals and I
founded a "TEE lecture series" at the University of Alabama, and
Wake Forest University.
I am very proud of my involvement with this website and I hope
you find it useful. Please feel free to send me your
