    Dr. Bryson is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Anesthesia and Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

    Dr. Bryson received his MD from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York in 2001 where he received the Dr. Joseph R. Jagust Award for excellence in Anesthesiology. After completing an Internal Medicine internship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, he returned to Mount Sinai Hospital for residency training in Anesthesiology. Upon graduation, Dr. Bryson received the Senior Resident Recognition Award for Outstanding Academic Accomplishments during residency. As a supplement to residency training, Dr. Bryson completed a one-year fellowship in simulation education at the Mount Sinai Human Simulation Center.

    Dr. Bryson has published extensively on the utilization of simulation in medical education and the care and treatment of the addicted patient. He served as a guest editor for the special issue on simulation of the Journal of Critical Care published in June of 2008 and as a guest editor for the Winter 2011 issue of the International Anesthesia Clinics focused on the anesthetic management of the patient who is addicted, dependent, or acutely intoxicated by a wide range of illicit and prescription drugs. 


    Dr. Bryson is also the senior editor of the textbook of Perioperative Addiction (Springer Science). Considered an expert in the field of the potential for addiction among anesthesiologists and the addictive nature of anesthetic agents, he is frequently consulted by Physicians and members of the lay media for comment on such matters.

    His current research involves addiction, depression and the use of novel anesthetic agents for in electroconvulsive therapy.
