“Dr. Johnson has demonstrated his leadership ability and commitment to excellent clinical care, medical education and life-saving research over the past five years,” Stannard said. “He exemplifies the type of clinician-educator who will help us advance University of Missouri’s stature as a leading academic medical center and research-intensive university.”

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in zoology and criminal justice from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, Johnson received his medical degree from Saint Louis University. He completed a residency in anesthesiology at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

“I am honored to lead MU’s anesthesiology department,” Johnson said. “I look forward to using MU’s outstanding array of resources and talent across multiple disciplines to further advance medical care, education and research.”
