    Dr. Melissa H. Coleman obtained her undergraduate degree in Biology at Harvard College and her medical degree at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Coleman began her General Surgery Residency at Duke University Medical Center where she completed her intern and second year. From 2009 – 2011 she was a research fellow in the Thoracic Surgery Oncology Laboratory at Brigham and Women's Hospital under the direction of Dr. Raphael Bueno, Chief of the Division of Thoracic Surgery. Her research focused on the identification of estrogen-regulated genes associated with malignant pleural mesothelioma outcomes. Dr. Coleman then completed her General Surgery Residency followed by a Surgical Critical Care and Clinical Nutrition Fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She subsequently completed a fellowship in Thoracic Surgery at UCSF. Dr. Coleman was awarded the UCSF Exceptional Physician Award in her final year as a Thoracic Surgery Fellow.
