Jennifer C. Fuller, M.D.


Originally from Oakland, California, Dr. Jennifer Fuller is a Chief Resident at Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School and will be pursuing a fellowship in facial plastic surgery at the University of Minnesota with Dr. Peter Hilger next year. Dr. Fuller is particularly interested in reconstructive plastic surgery, global health, outcomes research, and surgical simulation. She has participated in cleft lip/palate and microtia global surgery outreach in places such as Ecuador, Haiti, and Guatemala, and recently helped create and implement a global surgery training curriculum in facial plastic surgery. During residency, Dr. Fuller has worked closely with Dr. Robin Lindsay on researching clinical outcomes measures in functional septorhinoplasty. She has invented and created a nasal model simulator for surgical training in septorhinoplasty, which she is currently studying and has used to teach surgical techniques to otolaryngology residents abroad.
