Professional Highlights

Dr. Anil Trindade is Assistant Professor of Medicine and Associate Medical Director for Lung Transplant at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He received his MD degree from Duke University and went on to complete his residency at Johns Hopkins University. Following residency, he completed fellowship training in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Harvard Medical School. During this period, he worked under the mentorship of prominent Harvard professor, Dr. Elizabeth Henske, Director of the Center for LAM Research and Clinical Care and Co-Director of the Pulmonary Genetics Center. Dr. Trindade was appointed to the Harvard Medical School faculty in 2012, rejoining in 2017 after serving in private practice and at Tufts University and Columbia.  After returning to Harvard, he was appointed Associate Medical Director of the Lung Transplant Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Dr. Trindade has a deep and broad knowledge of pulmonary and critical care medicine and lung transplantation. His record as a clinician reflects numerous clinical innovations, all designed for quality improvement in patient care. At Harvard he began a deliberate effort to improve patient outcomes, developing care algorithms to an area of pulmonary medicine historically lacking any evidence-based approaches. His dedication to seeking answers and to question existing care paradigms allowed the development of multiple care “pathways,” which lead to significant standardization and improvement of care. Dr. Trindade has extensive experience in classroom teaching, clinical supervision, and teaching of residents and fellows. He has received honors and awards steadily throughout his academic career, including Phi Beta Kappa, an Honors' Thesis from Duke, an ATS travel award, and a recognition for Excellence in Tutoring from Harvard Medical School.
