Brandi Braud Scully, MD

Hecht-Levi Fellow

Brandi Braud Scully is a clinical fellow in cardiothoracic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and a recent graduate of the general surgery residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. While in residency there, Brandi was an affiliated member of the Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, served on the Ben Taub Hospital Ethics Committee, and taught ethics as a small group leader for the medical school’s Introduction to Ethics course and as a lecturer to surgical residents.

Her research has focused on pediatric thoracic transplantation, with work in re-transplantation, waiting list outcomes, surgical treatment of heart failure, and cardiac tissue engineering. The ethical challenges surrounding informed consent, medical decision-making, novel therapies, and medical uncertainty have shaped her academic inquiry. As a Hecht-Levi fellow, she plans to build on her prior work at the intersection of cardiothoracic surgery and ethics.
