Biography

Dr. Liu received his undergraduate education at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he double majored in Physiology and Psychology. He then completed his medical education at the Baylor College of Medicine, following which he received residency training in General Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center and surgical critical care fellowship training at the University of Minnesota. In addition to his formal clinical training, he received training in basic science laboratory research in the areas of tumor biology and critical care medicine.

Dr. Liu served as the 3rd- and 4th-year Surgery Clerkship Director at the University of Texas-Houston Medical School prior to joining the department at UCSF-East Bay. This background has led him to develop a strong interest in educational program development for medical students and postgraduate trainees. His diverse clinical interests range from gastrointestinal surgery, endocrine surgery, surgical oncology, to trauma/critical care. His recent research emphases have been directed toward clinical outcomes, and undergraduate and graduate medical education. Yearly since 2005, he travels to the Philippines on a medical mission under the auspices of the Northern California Philippino Medical Society.  He is a member and an active participant in a number of local, regional, and national professional organizations.
