The Carol B. and Jerome T. Loeb Teaching Fellows program provides fellows the opportunity to implement ideas that augment the education of medical students, residents and fellows. Initiated in 2004 with a gift from Carol and Jerome Loeb and supported by The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the program was established to advance clinical education at Washington University School of Medicine by honoring faculty committed to clinical excellence and education, and encouraging teaching that excellence to medical students, residents and fellows.
2023 – 2025 fellows
Lindsay Clukies, MD (Pediatrics): Safe Storage Project curriculum
Goals: Pediatricians are responsible for talking to all patients about firearm safety, and my project aims to make certain pediatricians have the necessary knowledge and comfort to ensure they meet this responsibility.
Implementation of the Safe Storage Project curriculum intends to address barriers and increase compliance with what pediatricians know is the best practice to impact this public health epidemic.
Mariam Malik, MD (Radiology): Interactive, integrated curriculum for Radiology-Anatomy correlation
Goals: The primary goal of the project is to enhance medical students’ foundational knowledge of Anatomy through an integrated curriculum utilizing interpretive skills in Radiology. The program will augment the current basic science Anatomy and clinical science Radiology teaching within the Gateway curriculum at Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) through a separate intentional, longitudinal curriculum focused on stepwise integration of the two threads across the phases.
