Caroline Chahine, MD

Clinical Instructor

Chief of Section, Cardiothoracic & Vascular Anesthesiology

I graduated from the University of Saint Joseph (Beirut) program in anesthesia/critical care in 1999, then pursued a fellowship in anesthesia for cardiothoracic and vascular surgery — including cardiac transplantation — at Bichat-Claude Bernard Hospital in Paris. I completed my specialty training by obtaining a university diploma in thoracic and transesophageal echocardiography at Creteil University in Paris, in 2002-2003. Currently my interests include research in transaortic valve implantation as practiced at LAU Medical Center-Rizk Hospital. Since obtaining my Diploma in Clinical Simulation at LAU in 2017-2018, I have also developed an interest in simulation-based education and its in situ application.
