Dr. Stephen Fuest joins the Department of Medicine

Stephen Fuest, MD

Dr. Fuest is joining the Division of General Medicine in July 2021 as an Instructor in Medicine after recently completing the year as ambulatory Chief Resident at Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to that he received his undergraduate education at Niagara University and medical school at Washington University in St. Louis. He was thrilled to stay at Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University in St. Louis for his internal medicine residency. He is passionate about general internal medicine and is excited to serve primary care patients within the excellent team of health care providers at Washington University Complete Care. As a resident he was a PCP for patients in the Primary Care Medicine Clinic (PCMC) at the downtown campus, and much of his chief residency was administration and supervision in this clinic. Now in the PCMC he will continue to precept and educate residents, as well as enhance transitions of care and telehealth.

He is interested in common types of transitions of care, such as discharge from an inpatient stay, and particularly hopes to help with the unique transition of physicians in a resident clinic. Additional experiences include educating residents and medical students, which he has previously done with the Washington University Teaching Physician Pathway (WUTPP) and during his chief year. This last year he focused on men’s health including benign prostatic hyperplasia, erectile dysfunction and microscopic hematuria. Prior teaching subjects have included HIV PrEP, alcohol use disorder, hypertension, anemia, telehealth, and workplace safety. He has over five years experience teaching medical students at the patient bedside, too. Outside of the clinic he loves spending time with his wife, walking their Boston Terrier, and following Buffalo sports.
