Biography


Dr. Jennifer Young Pierce is an Assistant Professor of Gynecologic Oncology at the Medical University of South Carolina and has been on the faculty at MUSC for four years. She was born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina and went to medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. She completed her residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital Integrated Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology which is associated with Harvard Medical School, and completed her fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Virginia (UVA). While in residency and fellowship, she developed an active interest in cervical cancer treatment and prevention. She completed her Masters in Public Health while at UVA, and as part of this degree, conducted research with the Joint Commission on Health Care for the Virginia General Assembly on HPV vaccination in Virginia. In addition to these efforts, Dr. Pierce led a team conducting the first use of the rapid HPV test for cervical cancer screening in Africa. After completing her fellowship, Dr. Pierce returned to South Carolina where she continues to conduct collaborative research to advance knowledge in cervical cancer screening and treatment through translational research, clinical trials, and public health based research techniques. She is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as Gynecologic Oncology. She also serves on the Immunology Committee for the Gynecologic Cancer Group and was recently named a Research All-Star by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Most importantly, Dr. Pierce is deeply committed to the care of women with gynecologic cancers and spends the majority of her time seeing patients and performing radical surgeries for cancer treatment. Dr. Pierce lives with her husband and daughter in Charleston.
