The Duke Division of Plastic, Maxillofacial, and Oral Surgery welcomes back former resident Brett T. Phillips, MD, MBA, as a new faculty member. Dr. Phillips was a resident in the Plastic and Reconstructive Residency Program from 2014–2017. He now joins the division as Assistant Professor of Surgery and Associate Program Director for the residency program.

Dr. Phillips is board certified in general surgery. He recently completed his fellowship in microvascular reconstructive surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center. He earned his medical degree from Stony Brook University where he also completed his general surgery residency and went on to receive his Master of Business Administration degree.
