Dr. Fu is a general surgery resident at the University of Michigan. She is interested in pursuing pediatric or cardiothoracic surgery. She grew up in San Diego, CA, then attended Dartmouth College where she studied biology and anthropology and Yale School of Medicine for medical school. She served with AmeriCorps in New York City between college and medical school, and worked in the Community Services Administration of the City of New Haven during medical school. These experiences fueled her interested in public policy, health disparities, and healthcare delivery in resource-limited settings.
Her research interests include disparities in the treatment of surgical disease, their outcomes, and burden of care on caregivers and families. She is also interested in the evaluation of post-operative quality of life and other patient-centered outcomes, and the effects of targeting modifiable risk factors on post-operative complication rates.
Dr. Fu is working towards a Master's in Health and Healthcare Research through Rackham Graduate School and the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation.
