Dr. Mingchun Liu joins the Department of Anesthesiology

Dear Colleagues – 

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Mingchun Liu has joined the Department of Anesthesiology at Washington University in St. Louis on August 1, 2022. She will have an appointment in the Divisions of Obstetric Anesthesiology and General Anesthesiology where she will perform her clinical work.

Dr. Liu completed her undergraduate work at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, AL before earning her MD at University of Alabama Birmingham School of Medicine. She was then recruited to the Department of Anesthesiology and our innovative residency program. This program provided her with the clinical training experience which was followed by a fellowship in Obstetric Anesthesiology. Thankfully, we have been successful in recruiting her to stay at Washington University in St. Louis as faculty.

Dr. Liu is also passionate about research with a primary interest in post-dural puncture headache. As a resident, she served as a co-author in a network meta-analysis of over 50 studies looking at the outcome of PDPH in relation to different spinal needles. As a fellow, she pursued this work with analysis of the efficacy of cosyntropin in the management of PDPH. In addition, she was instrumental in establishing clinical care protocols for pregnant women undergoing non-obstetric procedures.

Please welcome Dr. Mingchun Liu as a new faculty member at the School of Medicine and the Department of Anesthesiology.

Best wishes,
Arvind & Molly
