Brian Fuller, MD, MSCI, FCCM

Brian Fuller earned a bachelor of science in biology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he graduated in 1998. He graduated from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 2003 and then entered the four-year residency program in emergency medicine at the University of Cincinnati, serving as chief resident during his final year. Upon completion of residency in 2007, he opted for further training in critical care medicine, and completed the two-year multidisciplinary critical care fellowship at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, New Jersey in 2009. In 2009, he came to Washington University in St. Louis, where he was the first clinician with dual training, board certification, and appointments in both emergency medicine and critical care medicine. His primary clinical duties are in the Surgical/Trauma Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department. He earned his master of science in clinical investigation (MSCI) in 2013 through the Washington University Clinical Research Training Center.

As a clinical outcomes researcher, Fuller’s primary research interest is in the conduct of pragmatic clinical trials aimed at improving outcomes for patients with respiratory failure along the ED-to-ICU continuum. His research focuses on studying interventions traditionally reserved for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to a more proximal time window in presentation, such as the Emergency Department (ED).

On a personal level and most importantly, Dr. Fuller has a wonderful wife named Jamie and three children, Elizabeth, Charlie, and William. In his free time, he enjoys exercise, gardening, sports, live music, and just hanging out with the family.
