Dr Jordan Fulcher graduated from the University of New South Wales in 2003 and completed his cardiology specialty training at Royal Alfred Hospital in 2013. He completed a Masters in Clinical Trials Research in 2015 and submitted his PhD on statins, cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular disease at the University of Sydney in late 2016. He is involved in ongoing research in the same field at the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre at the University of Sydney.
Dr Fulcher has an active involvement in teaching, including lecturing and assessment for the Masters of Metabolic Health course at Sydney University, PBL tutoring for Sydney Medical School and summer scholarship student supervision at the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre. He is a regular speaker at GP educational meetings.
Dr Fulcher currently works as a VMO cardiologist at Strathfield Private Hospital and is an Honorary VMO at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. He has worked regionally in Orange and Coffs Harbour as a locum consultant and VMO cardiologist over the last several years. He is fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and an associated member of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand.
