In addition, Papadimos will take on the title of medical education director for the Jacobs Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center, working with leadership to ensure accreditation from all relevant organizations.

Papadimos returns to UTMC following a position as vice chair of academic affairs in the Department of Anesthesiology at Ohio State University and director of critical care services at the Ross Heart Hospital. He is affiliated with multiple Columbus-area hospitals, including James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

The recipient of multiple teaching awards, Papadimos also has been published many times over on topics related to critical care and anesthesiology. He is expected to introduce expertise that will help bring a critical care base to Toledo Hospital.

Papadimos received his medical degree from the Medical College of Ohio in 1978. He interned at Naval Medical Center and finished a fellowship at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education before completing a residency at Johns Hopkins University in 1985. His specialties include anesthesiology and critical care medicine.
