Steven M. Sultan is a clinical instructor and microsurgery fellow in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at UCSF. He received his B.A. from Boston University before completing medical school at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons. While in medical school he completed a one-year research fellowship in tissue-engineering at NYU's Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. He then completed general surgery training at Columbia followed by plastic surgery training at Albert Einstein.
