Dr Jesse Hu obtained her medical degree from the National University of Singapore. Since medical school days, she has been interested in surgery and completed her surgical training by rotating through the major hospitals in Singapore. She was subsequently admitted as a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) in Edinburgh, UK. 

In 2016, she was awarded the Health Manpower Development Program (HMDP) Award to pursue a year-long fellowship in Oxford University Hospital, UK. During that time, she completed her advance sub-specialty training in both oncoplastic breast and endocrine surgery.  

Dr Jesse's main interests lie in the area of oncoplastic breast surgery, combining breast cancer tumor removal and plastic surgery techniques to improve cosmetic outcomes. She believes that every patient should have a tailored individualised treatment and the appearance of the breast after the surgery is important. 

Currently, she practices as a Consultant Breast & Endocrine Surgeon in the Department of General Surgery at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and National University Hospital. She is also a core faculty member and teaching faculty of Yong Loo Lin School of medicine, where her duties include teaching and mentoring medical students and newly appointed doctors posted to the department. Her main research interests lie in breast cancer and thyroid surgery and she has authored book chapters and presented on these topics at numerous conferences.
