Allen Feng, M.D.

Feng Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Allen L. Feng, M.D., received his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta. There, he was awarded the APEGGA Past President’s Medal in Mechanical Engineering for achieving the highest academic standing in the department. He went on to attend medical school at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine where he received the W. Barry Wood Jr. Research Scholar award for outstanding medical student research.

As a resident in the Department of Otolaryngology at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School, Dr. Feng focuses his research efforts on medical device design, robotic surgery, and biomedical engineering with specific interests in applying Finite Element Modeling to biomechanial problems within head and neck surgery.
