|On behalf of Loeb Selection Committee co-chairs, Dr. Eva Aagaard and Dr. Abby Spencer, we are pleased to announce the call for applications for Loeb Teaching Fellows. Applications will be accepted beginning August 30th and are due by Friday, October 13, 2023 at 5:00pm.
The Loeb Teaching Fellows program was established in 2004 by a generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. Loeb to support faculty who are committed to excellence and innovation in teaching and education. The program provides fellows with the time and opportunity to develop and implement innovative ideas that augment the education of medical students, residents and fellows. All Washington University School of Medicine faculty (including volunteer faculty) at any level are eligible to apply. These prestigious fellowships are the cornerstone of our innovation in education efforts and are critical to helping WUSM grow as a world-class center for educational excellence.
There will be two (2) Loeb Teaching Fellowships available this term, supported jointly by the BJH Foundation and WUSM; the Fellowship term will run two years, beginning July 1, 2024 and ending June 30, 2026. A mid-term review and renewal is required in 2025. Loeb Teaching Fellows will receive $50,000 per year for two years for salary compensation only to enable dedicating a significant portion of his/her time to development and implementation of their project and direct teaching of medical students and/or residents.
For additional information on the Loeb Teaching Fellows, including a list of current and past fellows and the 2024 selection committee, please visit the Academy of Educators website. The online application form can be found HERE.
